McGonagle beat Cole by four seconds for first place. The event also included a 10-kilometer road race.

Rockland — A large crowd and a handful of fast runners — led by a teenager who came all the way from Minnesota to compete — made the annual Maine Lobster Festival 10-Kilometer Road Race and children's one-mile fun run memorable.

Wayde Hall, 17, of Stillwater, Minn. finished first over the 6.2-mile course in 34 minutes and 24 seconds, 30 seconds ahead of runner-up Nicholas Curelo, 24, of Pittsfield, Mass, who finished 34:54 during the Sunday morning, Aug. 5 event.

The first female finisher was Jennifer Rapaport, 48, of Melrose, Mass., who finished in 42:30, good for 12th overall.

In the children's one-mile fun run, Connor  McGonagle, 12, of Owls Head finished first in 6:20, besting runner-up Jordan Cole, 14, of Lisbon, who finished in 6:24.

Later in the afternoon, McGonagle set a record by racing across 6,000 lobster crates, proving his short morning run was a warm-up act. (Click to read story, view photos from crate race).
