Photos: Hundreds of runners finish half-marathon in Bristol

Posted

Nearly 800 runners looped through downtown Bristol and Colt State Park on Saturday morning and finished to a small crowd of spectators and supporters, during the fifth annual Independence Rhode Race. The race stepped off early in the morning, at 6:30 a.m., to help runners navigate most of the course before the day's heat really kicked in.

The fastest runner was 29-year-old Tyler Vandeventer of Boston, who ran the 13.1-mile course in 1 hour, 18 minutes, 7 seconds. The fastest female was Amanda Beucler of Medford, Mass., who finished 11th overall, with a time of  1:26:59.

The fastest Bristol runner was recent high school graduate, Nicholas Januario, who finished 10th overall, with a time of 1:26:49.
