Coastal Mountains Land Trust holds a unique road race — make that road races and a walk — each September when those who want to support the organization can do so by running 6.2 miles or running/walking 3.1 miles.

More than 100 people — including 64 who opted to make the 6.2-mile trek — participated in the second annual Run for the Hills early Saturday morning.

Ryan Leighton, 24, of Trevett finished first in the 10-kilometer event, crossing the course in 38 minutes and 33 seconds. Theresa Withee, 43, of Camden was the first female finisher with a time of 45:14.

Only results for the 10K were kept. The 5K is held more for a fun run or walk, thus, no places or times were kept.

The event offers a 10-kilometer (6.2-mile) competitive road race and a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) fun run/walk. The 10K began near the Waterfall Arts on 256 High Street in Belfast.

The scenic route highlighted several local conservation projects, including the Land Trust’s Stover, Head of Tide, and Stephenson Preserves, as well as a conservation easement and a trail managed by the Land Trust on the city’s property. These properties are part of the Land Trust’s Passagassawakeag Greenway Campaign, an on-going initiative to create a public trail network on conserved land along the banks of the Passagassawakeag River. Participants also traveled along the river, where ospreys and bald eagles are frequently spotted. The route finished on the Belfast Footbridge.

Net proceeds from the event directly benefit the land trust’s land conservation work in the Greenway and throughout the western Penobscot Bay region.
