Baldwinsville The Rotary Club of Baldwinsville’s Rotary Run was held Oct. 16 at Baker High School.
With more than 30 competitors running and walking the 5K, the club felt it was a great start to what they hope will become a fall tradition, and would like to thank all the competitors and volunteers that made it happen.
“With the first autumn race completed, we are confident that the word will get out about our worthy cause and well-run event so more people will plan ahead to run or walk with us next year,” said Rotary Club member and committee chairperson Dom Losurdo. He also said that the club learned a lot from the planning process and the day of the event so they can make next year’s race even better.
This year’s winner was Lukas Rising, 23, of Seneca Falls.
