HARWICH – Running a 5K isn't always an easy feat, but don't tell that to Bryan Gallagher. The Boston resident who came in first overall in the June 22 road race made it seem like a breeze, finishing a full two minutes before the next runner in the annual event that not only kicked off summer on the Lower Cape, but also celebrated 10 years of fun running.

Gallagher became the first overall runner to cross the finish line, as well as the first man and the first in his age group (20-29) with his time of 16:04.9 according to 3C Race Productions, which officially timed the race.

Coming in first for the women was Julianna Coughlin of Falmouth, who posted an impressive time of 20:12.8, becoming the first overall female and the first in her age group (20-29), while Christopher Harwick was the first Harwich runner to cross the finish line with a time of 19:50.

The annual event drew a good crowd of folks lacing up their best trainers to walk or run the three-mile course through scenic Harwich Port before venturing to Ember for the awards ceremony and after party.
