The Safe Passage 5k was this morning, with little to no wind, a clear sky, and cool but warming temperatures. There were 392 finishers. Ethan Hemphill led a string of 4 Dirigo runners to win the race in 15:29, with Suzanne Ray taking the women’s race in 19:07.
The race raised almost $11,000 for Safe Passage, an organization that provides educational resources to children in Guatemala City. The race was started by and now memorializes the Safe Passage founder Hanley Denning, who passed away in a car accident before the 2006 running of the race.
