BELMONT Thanks to a blistering pace that saw him break the one-hour mark, Derry's Kevin McMahon breezed to victory on Saturday.

The 21-year old motored through the tough course at the 46th Belmont 10 Mile Road Race in just 57 minutes, 15 seconds (5:44/mile pace), winning by nearly five minutes over a field of 75 finishers.

Northfield's Dylan McGuffin was the top local finisher, as the 26-year-old who ran at Sant Bani School and eventually UNH, finished in the runner-up spot behind McMahon with a time of 1:01:43.

Derry's Doug Ainson was third overall (1:03:03), while Belmont's Sean McCauley nabbed fourth position with a time of 1:03:54. McCauley moved up two spots from 2013 when he finished sixth in the race.

Worcester's Cat Chviruk captured first place in the women's race, as the 22-year old made her way through Belmont with a time of 1:12:19 (7:14/mile pace). Chviruk finished 11th overall in the field.

Wolfeboro's Katja Fox (18th overall, 1:16:02) and Laconia's Sarah Morrissette (26th, 1:19:37) rounded out the top three finishers on the women's side.

Belmont High School standout Joe Boles of Canterbury, who graduated this spring and will run track at UNH, took nearly six full minutes off last year's time, moving up from 10th place in 2013 to grab seventh overall this year with a time of 1:06:26.

Belmont's Brendan McCauley (eighth, 1:09:08), Canterbury's Graham Hayslip (ninth, 1:10:10) and Sanbornton's James Cianci (10th, 1:10:51) rounded out the top 10 in the grueling event.

Sanbornton's Chris Abbott was 12th overall on the day (1:13:09), while Laconia's Aaron Hayward, the cross country and track and field coach at BHS, finished 16th overall (1:15:07).

Belmont's Ben Charleston scratched over five minutes off his time from last year, as the 13-year old was 28th overall in 1:22:53. Father Kevin Charleston was close behind in 35th position (1:28:00).
