Sisters Ruth and Nora White finished first and second in the women’s division, respectively, in the 40th Annual Walter Hunt 4th of July 3K Road Race over a rain-drenched course in Brewer and Bangor on Sunday morning.

The running standouts from Orono High School were two of 117 runners who finished the race, which was canceled last year because of the pandemic and limited to a field of 200 pre-registrants this year for a race that typically draws 300 to 400 competitors.

Younger sister Ruth White, 15, clocked a time of 10 minutes, 5 seconds over the speedy, mostly downhill course that starts near the Dunkin’ Donuts on Wilson Street in Brewer, down that street and over the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge before crossing down Bangor’s Main Street and finishing at the end of the Kenduskeag Stream footbridge.

Nora White, 17, claimed second place with a 10:31 time and was followed by Lindsay Hackett (11:59), Katie Snow (12:02) and Katherine Collins (12:20) to round out the top five.

David Kerschner of Old Town captured his second road-race victory of the weekend with a first-place finish in Sunday’s race with a 9:14 clocking after finishing first at 4:24.41 in the LP Miracle Mile in Houlton on Friday.

Isaac Vaccaro placed second in Sunday’s race with a 9:26 time and was followed by Charlie Collins (9:40), David Haluska (9:46) and Andrew Goupee (9:52) to round out the top five.

The race usually precedes the Bangor area’s Fourth of July parade route but that event was canceled due to rain.
