Despite a driving rain, approximately 100 people took part in the 5K Run/Walk Challenge and 1 Mile Fun Walk to support the Huntingtown High School boys lacrosse program. The course was modified from the cross country trail to the perimeter of the high school and lower baseball field path.
“Hopefully, next year will be sunny and drier, although the rain makes for some fun stories to tell,” said parent race coordinator Steve Clements. “For our first event I really appreciate everyone’s commitment to make this happen.”
The lacrosse team raised money from race entries, local businesses and family sponsorships.
“What coach wouldn’t be pleased to have their team run a 5K on a Sunday afternoon?” asked varsity head boys lacrosse coach Pete Kerwin, who competed along with assistant coach Mike Rowe.
Entertainment was provided by Hi-Res, a band featuring drummer and current Huntingtown All-American goalie Erik Hyland and his brother Reid, a 2011 graduate who plays bass and sings lead vocals.
