Hurricane who? Hundreds run in Mattapoisett Road Race
MATTAPOISETT — The streets of Mattapoisett were filled with runners and supporters on Saturday morning for the Mattapoisett Road Race.
The race is usually a five-mile run through Mattapoisett Center on the Fourth of July. This year, it was delayed to August and shortened to a 5K due to covid.
Still, community members came out in the hundreds to run and watch.
“It was a great turnout,” said Bill Tilden.
There were a total of 260 finishers, spanning 6 to 87 years old.
There were many people on the sidewalks cheering on the runners. Joey Botelho was with his grandmother Traci Botelho.
Traci said they were there to cheer on Joey’s mother and father who both ran in the race.
There was no award ceremony this year to help with cutting down on the crowds. All times were posted online and awards will be mailed to winners.
The winner was 23 year old Trevor Wysong, who crossed the line with a time of 15:09. The first female finisher was 59 year old Mary Cass, who finished in 14th place at 20:46.
Here are the top male and female finishers:
Trevor Wysong - 15:09
Jason Eddy - 17:49
Corey Herbert - 18:07
Mary Cass - 20:46
Julie Craig - 21:23
