The winning time for the Harry Chapin Memorial Run Against Hunger 10k race was 35:07. And the course is quite a challenge too. See the map for yourself.

But the 10k wasn’t the only race taking place on Sunday, October 15, 2006. By far, the one-mile “fun run” attracts the most varied participation from runners, walkers and strollers young and old. That doesn’t mean that the race isn’t competitive though. It was the students from both Carrie E. Tompkins Elementary School and Pierre Van Cortlandt Middle School ran their best and were subsequently rewarded with shiny trophies.

The race, now in its 26th year, not only provides hunger relief for those in need, but also serves as a really wonderful and healthy community event. And what a day it was. With mostly sunny skies, a light wind and temps in the mid-sixties most runners even managed to break a sweat.
