Belfast — Nearly 90 participants pounded pavement and trails in the Belfast Rail Trail 5-kilometer and 5-mile races on Saturday, June 2 as cool, breezy conditions aided the runners on the scenic courses.

The event, put on by Coastal Mountains Land Trust in conjunction with National Trails Day, included a new five-mile option that included a loop along Front Street and had participants go to the end of the trail before turning around at the Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad Museum.

The 5K runners went as far as the trestle bridge before they turned around, with a member of the Belfast Bay Fiddlers on hand to entertain runners at the turn.

Roger Quehl IV of Searsmont was the first 5K finisher and Jala Tooley the first female at fourth overall in the 3.1-mile distance, while Evan Hutchins was the first five-mile finisher at 46th and Andrea Giddings the first female at the distance in 50th.

The individual results of the 5K and 5-mile races (not separated), with place, name, age, residence and time listed, included: 1, Roger Quehl IV, 30, Searsmont, 16:53; 2, Andrew Legere, 39, Liberty, 20:28; 3, Levi Woods, 13, Belfast, 21:29; 4, Jala Tooley, 38, Camden, 21:47; 5, Peter Mareck, 23, Washington, 21:52; 6, Jeremy Gage, 44, Thorndike, 7, Antonio Hernandez, 30, Rockland, 22:04; 8, Colleen Kelley, 26, Altoona, Penn., 22:09; 9, Katie Buckley, 39, Searsmont, 22:15; 10, Will Field, 30, Belfast, 22:29; 11, Caitlin May, 30, Belfast, 22:33; 12, Galen Stubbert, 22, Belfast, 22:37; 13, Donald Kitchen, 40, Northport, 22:50; 14, Steve Cartwright, 66, Tenants Harbor, 22:51; 15, Marshall Wall, 11, Richmond, 23:38; 16, Jonathan McDevitt, 15, Camden, 23:44; 17, Bret Hanson, 58, Hudson, 23:45; 18, Hartlova Petra, 36, Northport, 23:49; 19, Benjamin Blake, 36, Stockton Springs, 25:12; 20, Seth Kiernan, 36, Belfast, 26:01; 21, KayDee Martin, 49, Rome, 26:03; 22, Paul Hogan, 16, Gardiner, 26:56; 23, Kasey Leidenroth, 29, Washington, 27:34; 24, Myles Allen, 31, Hallowell, 28:04; 25, Alana Hutchins, 30, Swanville, 28:22; 26, Danielle Blake, 47, Liberty, 29:00; 27, Chris McNickles, 47, Gardiner, 29:13; 28, Jessica Woods, 38, Belfast, 29:22; 29, Juan Baez, 53, Waterville, 29:31; 30, Maria Vazquez, 49, Waterville, 29:34; 31, Susan Hanson, 56, Hudson, 30:01; 32, Debbie Ambro, 65, Sullivan, 30:37; 33, Paula Herron, 61, Northport, 30:48; 34, Bridget Fullerton, 45, Bath, 31:11; 35, Lori Thayer, 48, Belfast 31:41; 36, Cassie Sano, 57, Augusta, 32:01; 37, Brynne Sawyer, 13, Swanville, 32:53; 38, Allison Sherman, 26, Winterport, 32:55; 39, Noah Burditt, 26, Winterport, 32:56; 40, Susan Colvin, 41, Dixmont, 33:16; 41, Randall Colvin, 40, Dixmont, 33:16; 42, Lynda Wall, 53, Richmond, 33:27; 43, Faith Boynton, 35, Belfast, 33:45; 44, Mariah Ramirez, 23, Thorndike, 33:47; 45, Martha Dixon, 69, Northport, 33:48; 46, Evan Hutchins, 30, Swanville, 33:50; 47, Nathaniel Martin, 13, Rome, 34:40; 48, Benjamin Martin, 15, Rome 34:41; 49, Bryan McCarthy, 40, Hope, 34:59; and 50, Andrea Giddings, 33, Belfast, 33:10.
