Low temperatures aside, more than 800 people gathered for this year's Millenium Mile in Londonderry, N.H.
The race, which is in its eighth year and is sponsored by the New Hampshire Union-Leader, puts runners on a downhill course and frequently sees the four-minute barrier broken.
Among this year's participants, the Union-Leader of Manchester, N.H. reported, was Kathryn McGovern of Framingham, who completed the course in 8 minutes and 23 seconds.
McGovern was the oldest person to complete the downhill mile at a robust 90 years old.
