More than 250 runners took to Smithtown’s streets for the annual 5K Running of the Bulls Sept. 29. The cool, crisp morning gave way to sunshine made for perfect conditions for the morning’s run.
Merrick resident Brendan Kaelin, 33, crossed the finish line first with a time of 19 minutes, 4.39 seconds; or an average of 6:03 per mile. He was closely followed by the top female finisher Maria Marascia, 27, who had an overall time of 9:29.5.
Prior to the 5K race, there was a 2K fun run that was participated in by children under age 12 and their parents, adults with their dogs and those who have just started running.
