Syosset speedster Kim Solomine took second-place honors among the women in the 55 to 59 age group in the Jan. 19 Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery.
Solomine, who is 44 and runs competitively for the Greater Long Island Running Club, crossed the finish line in 1 hour, 17 minutes, 39 seconds, just 41 seconds behind age group winner Linda Ottaviano of Cold Spring Harbor.
While it wasn’t nearly as warm as it was for the 2012 edition of the run, Mother Nature provided clear skies on the morning of Jan. 19 for the 3rd Annual running Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery.
One thousand seventy finishers enjoyed a fast, flat 10-mile course from Patchogue through Blue Point and Bayport to Sayville and back, followed by a post-race courtesy of Pete Cotter and his team at the Blue Point Brewery in Patchogue.
Ric Diveglio of the Greater Long Island Running Club served as race director. Diveglio and the race committee of Linda Ottaviano, Brendan Barrett, Mike Nolan, Pete Cotter of the Blue Point Brewery, Fred von der Heydt, Nikita Dorcinvil of justfinish.net, and Carl Grossbard made something that was not very easy look as smooth as possible
Organizers are pleased that a significant amount of the proceeds of the run will be turned over to Tom Fricke and his Better Understanding of Life in Africa (BULA) program.
