The second annual Run For The Money 5-Kilometer Road Race proved a rousing success as more than 50 runners and walkers turned out for the event on Sunday, May 26 at Lincolnville Central School.

The event raised about $4,000, which went to the Mikail R. Russo More Opportunities for Neighborhood Youth (MONEY) Athletic Foundation Scholarship Program.

In the past, the Russos sponsored a home run derby in memory of their late son, Mikail, for a decade, but the derby gave way to the road race last spring.

Mike Pierce edged out last year's event winner Darren Winchenbach by one second — 19:48 to 19:49 — to win the race, while Kelsey Brooks (23:23) was the first female finisher and fifth overall.

Pierce and Brooks received $50 gift certificates to Peter Ott's On The Water for winning their respective gender divisions.

In addition to many local runners, participants from Rhode Island, Arizona, South Carolina, Georgia and Massachusetts also took part in the event.

The race was sponsored by Jaret & Cohn, Gartley and Dorskey, Micucci Wholesale, Rankins Inc., Allen Financial, Maine Coast Construction, Capt'n Eli's, Brooks Trap Mill, Viking Inc. and Park Street Grille.
