On Sunday, June 4, 2017 the fifth annual SMH Run for Wellness 5k yielded almost 200 walkers and runners for the race. Participants from the Oxford Hills Community and as far as Massachusetts came out and ran for the health of it!
The day’s events kicked off with a Kids Fun Run which had a total of eighteen participants. Every child that crossed the finish line received a medal for their participation. The top three finishers were: Owen Marr of Norway (first place), Carter Hart of Norway (second place), and Tyler Britton of Norway (third place). Congratulations to all the participants in the Kids Fun Run!
Dominic Sclafani of Harrison was the top finisher with a race time of 17:04. Jen Blastow of Oxford was the first female to cross the finish line with a time of 21:02. Both Dominic and Jen received a $50 gift certificate to New Balance.
