We had a fantastic day for our 27th Annual 1k Kids fun run and 5k road race. 
 
This year we had a total of 286 registered runners, with 78 kids in the 1k fun run! You can find your race time result on the Granite State Race Services website here.
 
Congratulations to Jay Mulder, the overall boys 1k winner finishing at 3:00, and Findley Wessel, the overall girls 1k winner finishing at 3:14!  In the 5k race, Charlie Smith was the first to cross the finish line and placed first in the men's division, while Alison White placed first in the women's division.   Check out pictures from the day on KBIA's facebook page.
 
A huge thank you goes out to Hannaford and Congdon's Doughnuts for their generous donations to the race.  
 
And of course we can't forget to express our gratitude to all the volunteers, runners, and spectators for making this such a special and fun day!
