About 3,000 individuals trekked to Portland Oct. 3 to participate in the 19th annual Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon. A solid number of Midcoast runners made an appearance among the 897 marathoners and 2,034 half-marathon competitors.

Included in the group was Michael Bunker of Rockland, who finished second in the half-marathon with a time of one hour, 12 minutes and 43 seconds. Bunker was outpaced by his friend Nick Wheeler of Gorham, who won the event in 1:09:16.

“I was definitely fit for a 68-minute half[-marathon] or faster, but I think racing two back-to-back 5Ks the weekend prior must have fried my legs,” Bunker said. “The shorter races have been treating me very nice, however, this year, but I’ll make sure I’m back for the half next year with plans on stamping down a healthy time.”

Bunker said he receives enjoyment from the Maine running community and this race was no different.

“The running community in Maine is the most tightly knit, interactive and friendly bunch that I’ve come across in my travels. So much so that it makes me happy to throw my lot in as one of them,” he said. “Nick Wheeler is one of my best friends, as it so happens, and we went to [the University of] Southern Maine together. He’s definitely a tough guy to beat as Sunday proved him to be yet again.”

Jeremy Adler of New York finished first in the marathon, completing the 26.2-mile course in 2:36:35.

“It was really nice conditions for running. It never got warm at all,” said 75-year-old Camden runner Art Warren, who participated in half-marathon. “It was perfect [for] running.”

Warren said, “because the weather was so good, no rain, no high winds or cold, or anything like that, you had a very good turnout.”

The temperatures started in the low 40s in the morning and gradually increased during the day, which is good for longdistance running. No rain helped the situation as the runners trickled across the finish line during the day to take their well-earned rests.

Notably places were given by gun time not net time in the race. Gun time is from the moment the race starts to the time the runner crosses the finish line, while net time is from when the runner crosses the start line to when they cross the finish line.

The individual results for Midcoast runners in both races, with place, name, age, town, gun time and net time included, are listed:
