Top finishers were Travis Robison of Ambler and Courtney Sobolewski of Blue Bell.
Local runner Skip Schanbacker opened with the “Star Spangled Banner” on trumpet and Mark Ullman of Doylestown Borough led the runners around the race course on his bicycle.
The race, which included a one-kilometer wheelchair-accessible fun walk, was held on the campus of Delaware Valley University. Major sponsor was Penn Color.
“The money raised by our race in entry fees, sponsorships and direct donations is hugely important,” says Gail Linenberg, president of the Doylestown club. “Every dollar sent to the Rotary Foundation for the eradication of polio worldwide will be tripled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”
