Exactly 1,111 runners turned out for the annual Somerville Homeless Coalition benefit 5K Race on Sunday. Check out our photo gallery to see a few of them and their supporters.
According to initial figures, the race netted $35,000 for the Somerville nonprofit, which provides social services to the Somerville area's homeless, near-homeless and working poor.
Robert Espinosa took first place with a time of 15:59 minutes. The fastest woman was Rachel Shanley, who ran the race in 18:13 minutes. The Steve Burton Award, to the person who raised the most money for the Coalition, was awarded to Robert Segal.
"A lot of work, but the day was perfect for a race, the runners were a joyful bunch, the brunch–from Davis Square's great restaurants–superb, and I had a great afternoon nap," wrote Coalition Executive Director Mark Alston-Follansbee in an e-mail.
"Thanks to all who made it possible," he added. "Somerville is a great place to live and work and the community support we receive–from the City, the police department, our volunteers, and the runners–makes it possible for us to do the work we do. Thank you all. "
