A large group gathered Saturday morning for the annual Katonah 5K Road & Trail Race, starting and finishing on the street in front of Katonah Elementary School and going through a 3.1-mile course.

In addition, there was a short, 1-mile race for kids, along with a tots' race that involved sprinting across Huntville Road.

The race has had several notable changes in recent years, according to Annie Bai, who is the race director. It was not held in 2010 due to the cost - the police department was not paid for the event - but it was revived in 2011 amid the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Financial changes implemented include paying for police assistance and getting donations from several local merchants who serve as sponsors. The race also served as a chance to donate proceeds to the Katonah Village Library and the Bedford Hills Free Library.

For the results, the overall finishers are below:


1st: Pippa Nuttal, a 12-year-old Katonah resident, at 22:45

2nd: Beth Smith, a 34-year-old Bedford Hills resident, at 24:19

3rd: Kelley Housman, a 49-year-old South Salem resident, at 24:39


1st: Timothy Kuklis, a 31-year-old Mount Kisco resident, at 17:47

2nd: Drew Klein, a 22-year-old Chappaqua resident, at 19:45

3rd: Harry Alverson, a 34-year-old Katonah resident, at 20:01
