And they’re off. Runners between the ages of 3 and 12 years-old take off for a one mile race around Town Common. Nearly 50 runners between the ages of 3 and adult turned out for the annual Fourth of July foot race around Town Common on Wednesday, June 25.

The competition was divided into two events, a one-mile distance for racers up to 12 years-old, and a two-mile run for teens and adults.

In the 3 to 6 year-old division, Logan Allen and Sophia Bortone were the top boy and girl finishers.

For the 7 to 9 year-old age group, Grant Garcia was the fastest boy and Claire Chace was the top girl finisher.

Among the 10 to 12 year-old runners, Gabe Randall was the overall winner of the one-mile race, with the top girl finisher, Kaleigh Quinn, placing third overall.

Michael Augustus took first place in the two-mile race with a winning time of 11:17. Karina Tavares, the first female to cross the finish line, took second place with her time of 11:49.
