Tremendous race and tremendously fun for we watching the race. The most enjoyable was seeing the families cheer on their loved ones. I didn’t photograph the men’s and women’s winners Dan Chruniak and Layce Alves crossing the finish line as I was filming them. This was Layce Alves 7th 5k win! For complete coverage of the race, see today’s Gloucester Daily Times.
