The race started at 9 a.m. at Frost Park, the participants heading north along Water Street on a course that eventually finished back on Water Street at Rudder’s.
Matthew White, 34, of Dartmouth was the first to reach the finish line, covering the 10-kilometre route in 35:02, with Yarmouth County’s Bryan Hipson, 48, second in 35:12.
