Silent Sunday

Scenes from the annual Beach to Beacon 10K Race in Cape Elizabeth, Me, August 3, 2013

A view from the air


Hundreds of volunteers turned out to help




The six thousand runners line up at the starting gate.




Runners are cheered on along the route.



And the leaders approach the finish line.....




And the winner is....Micah Kogo of Kenya!

Oh I'm disappointed, I thought you would be the winner. I can understand why you didn't compete though, you didn't want to embarrass all the other contestants with your speed and agility.

What, a guy from Kenya won a race? I'm shocked. Great pics.

Wow, I've never run with that many people. I bet that's intense. Also, as soon as you showed the black guys racing toward the finish line I laughed under my breath and said, "I bet they're from Kenya." I was not disappointed.

Those were beautiful shots, even if you didn't take them! So glad the race went off event free, meaning NO PROBLEMS.
