Nearly 100 competitors turned out Saturday morning, the day before Mother’s Day, to participate in the annual Penquis 5-kilometer road race and walk. Midcoast residents of all ages celebrated a warm spring day, strong running, and, of course, moms.

A pair of Rockland runners ruled the streets by finishing first over the 3.1-mile course.

Nick Wheeler, 25, nabbed first overall as he finished in 16 minutes and 15 seconds, while Katie Johnson, 29, was the first female finisher, crossing the course ninth in 22:17.

In a few of the more important special catergories, first place for adult(s)with minor child were Chad Howard, Melissa Howard and Cassandra Howard, while the first-place finisher for the adult with child in stroller category were Pete Scheib and Ali Sheib.

There also was a children’s 250-meter dash before the 5K.

Proceeds from the event support Penquis Head Start, a program under Penquis Child Development. The Mother’s Day race/walk was hosted by Penquis and Maine Eastern Railroad.
