READY, SET, GO — Race Director Martha Eaton, red coat on the right, starts the 5K.

WATERFORD — The rain came, but mostly fell on the volunteers who came early to help set up. By the time the Fun Run started, the rain stopped and eventually there was some sun. Even with all the weather, the race went well, and enough braved the weather to make it successful.

There was lots of chili for the cook off, with Jamie Toohey taking first place. Thanks to the Waterford Harrison PTO for all their hard work on this. Thanks Kevin Toohey for all your help.

Race director, Martha Eaton, sent off 16 kids for the 1 mile fun run, and 126 racers for the 5K.

For the Fun Run, the female overall results were: Eva Brannan, 10, Lunenburg, Mass., at 7:30; Ella Brannan, 9, Lunenburg, Mass., at 8:09 and Finley Heath, 7, Goffstown, N.H., at 8:18.

Overall Fun Run male results were Connor Deignan, 12, Arlington, Mass., at 6:52; Ethan Stockwell, 10, Scarborough, at 7:07 and Andrew Page, 6, Bowdoin at 8:50.
