WATERPORT – Paul Glor of Rochester is way ahead of a field of about 75 runners this morning at the Brown’s Berry Patch 5K. Glor finished the race in 15:50. He has won the race the last five years and six times overall.

Participants are pictured at the beginning of the race, an annual event at Brown’s since 1996. The race has raised $32,000 for Hospice of Orleans, not counting today’s total.

Jack Richardson, 81, of Albion nears the finish line with his grandson, Chad Hardy, a senior at Roberts Wesleyan College. Richardson, a retired pastor, runs many local 5-kilometer races. His daughter Martha Hardy, Chad’s mother, also ran the race this morning.

Paul Glor was the men’s overall winner. He is pictured with Dana Phillips of Lyndonville, the women’s overall winner.
