McCloskey and Jones beat Beethoven!

Masters runner Larry McCloskey continued his winning ways and Tania
Jones came back after a late summer injury to win this morning's Beat
Beethoven 8K in Rockcliffe Park. It was a perfect race day with
overcast skies, no wind and cool temperatures and the sounds of
Beethoven's Fifth Symphony at the start/finish - live - and en route -
taped, filling the air for 33 minutes. McCloskey ran 25:17 to beat
Rick Hellard by 21 seconds while Jones'  29:19 beat Masters runner Pat
Mcdougall by 23 seconds.
