Deep field set for Bridge of Flowers 40th anniversary
Saturday at 9 a.m. for the beginning of the 40th annual road race on the Iron Bridge in Shelburne Falls.The race will be preceded by the Steve Lewis Subaru Charity 3K Run/Walk, which begins at 8:15 a.m.This year's main event has been shortened from a 10K to an 8K race in order for organizers to cut out the part of the course that had competitors run along Route 112 in Buckland, which was the lone street that is not fully closed down for the race. While some folks expressed initial concern over the shortening of the race, the number of registrants was up as of earlier this week and the field includes many top runners from New England.Last season, John Busque, of Manchester, Connecticut, showed up on the morning of the event, registered and won.Busque tracked down defending champion Glarius Rop, of Agawam, on the stretch of course that no longer exists. He passed Rop and beat the two-time champion by 43 seconds.Those two men are back this season and both will be among the favorites to win the race. The third-place finisher from a year ago, Scott Mindel, of Burlington, Vermont, also returns.Rop is a member of the Western Mass. Distance Project, and will... Aug 10, 2017
Changes mark this year's Bridge of Flowers race
SHELBURNE FALLS — The cowbell used to mark the start of the Bridge of Flowers road races will still be wrung by founder and former race director Michael McCusker, but some changes mark the 39th annual 3K and 10K runs this year.The Bridge of Flowers races take place Saturday, Aug. 12, generally bringing at least 1,000 competitors and their families into Shelburne Falls for the day or for the weekend.This year’s race has a new director, Carole Appleton. Also a new “garland of pennants” will be installed to replace the traditional helium balloon arch. Local artist Jane Beatrice Wegscheider, director of The Art Garden has designed both the artwork that adorns this year’s T-shirt and hand-painted canvas banners fluttering near the finish line.“I’m handpainting repurposed canvas that we found,” said Wegscheider. She said the instillation will include five tiers of brightly colored triangles and strips along the scaffolding that are “more ecological than the helium balloons.” Also, the pennan...

Glarius Rop wins Bridge of Flowers 10k
SHELBURNE FALLS — More than 600 runners braved intense heat and oppressive humidity to run the 38th Bridge of Flowers 10K Classic Road Race Saturday morning, when Agawam’s Glarius Rop paced the field to win the event in 33 minutes, 15 seconds.
While Rop was a former champion, having won the event in 2013 and finishing second in 2014, the women’s race featured a first-time winner. Newcomer Semehar Tesfaye made her Bridge of Flowers debut a memorable one by besting a tight field to the top of the podium with a winning time of 39:03.
Rop almost didn’t participate in the race, deciding at the last minute to run. He said he has had a busy summer of running and wasn’t sure if he was going to again do the Bridge Race. But because the event is so close to his Agawam home, he made the hour trip north. The native of Kenya and former American International College runner had plenty in his tank, winning by 36 seconds over runner-up Eric Blake of West Hartford, Connecticut, whose time was 33:51.

Bridge of Flowers Classic race has classic day
Bridge of Flowers Classic 10K road race Saturday.
Matthew Brooker, of Albany, New York, cruised to a first place finish in 33:50. Brooker and Shelburne Falls native, Dan Smith, took the lead from the start but Brooker took a seven second lead after the first mile.
The race features a crushing three-quarters of a mile climb up Crittendon Hill, and Smith was able to close the gap to 40 yards there. But the ensuing downhill enabled Brooker, 24, to build his lead to 42 seconds by the finish line.
Smith, a popular local athlete, was running in his fourth Bridge of Classic race, with today's race being his best finish.
Brooker is a software engineer who recently graduated from Cedarville College in Ohio. His wife is a member of the Willow Street Athletic Club and her team has been coming to Shelburne Falls for the last few years, so Brooker decided to come along for his first visit.His winning time was well off the course record time of 30:10.
Jon Korhonen of Somerville, a University of Massachusetts at Amherst graduate, placed third with a time of 34:50. David Burnham, of West Hartford, Connecticut, and Alex Kramer, of Somerville, placed 4th and 5th with times of 35:12 and 35:25 respectively.

5 Amazing Elevated Gardens
Bridge of Flowers, Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Share This Story
Maybe the earliest bridge conversion in the U.S. was the 1928 Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts. At the point when a solid trolley bridge over the Deerfield River dropped out of use after its owners went bankrupt, a local occupant recommended to the town that the weedy relic be replanted. The bridge has stayed open continuously since, aside from restoration work in the mid-1980s, during which each plant, tree, and bush was uprooted and looked after in private gardens nearby.
Anacostia and Capitol Hill neighborhoods, Washington, D.C., U.S.A.
In Washington, D.C., the Anacostia and Capitol Hill neighborhoods will be joined by a bridge park set to open in 2018. In a community oriented design from OMA, Rem Koolhaas' architectural firm, and the Olin landscape design studio, the city's first elevated park will re-deck and develop the current Eleventh Street Bridge. Plans incorporate performance spaces, waterfalls, hammocks, gardens, and a bistro.
The Hofbogen project, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
The Hofbogen venture in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, will include business space and an elevated park, utilising an old rail line as its base. Brought about by Doepel Strijkers, a firm that has some expertise in practical design and atmosphere issues, the recreation centre will unite Rotterdam Airport and advancements around it to the city area heating network. The industrial waste heat being directed will warm the prewar structures along the park's trajectory, radically diminishing their CO2 footprints.
