Below is another race, we'll try to feature on the HP tmw.
In NH, the Millennium Mile was held on January 1, 2013 in Londonderry.
From an email we got from race organizers:
There were a record 1428 runners, and the winning time was 4:07. You can find the results (and pictures will be up soon) at millenniumrunning.com/millenniummile. The top two guys were Congolese refugees who attended high school in NH, while the third finisher was Aaron Yoder, coach of Bethany College in Kansas. He was attempting to break 4 minutes, went through the half in 1:55 and faded badly in the last quarter. It's a downhill course (80 feet elevation loss), straightish course with a tailwind yesterday, about 25 degrees or so.
The Union Leader newspaper also has an article linked from the race webpage: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20130101/SPORTS10/130109975/1003/sports
