Up to speed

More than 375 walkers and runners participated in the Aaron Family Jewish Community Center’s 26th annual Bagel Run Sunday. More than 50 children ran the Kids K, and more than 325 adults participated in the 5K and 10K.
All of the youths who ran the Kids K received participation medals, and the top three finishers, male and female in each age group of the 5K and 10K earned awards for their great efforts.
Schaffer Ochstein was the overall winner of the 10K with a time of 38 minutes, 43 seconds, while Arielle Kaplan took home the top prize for the females in the 10K with a time of 50:34.
Gustavo Aguirre took home top honors in the 5K with a time of 19:34 and Rachel Carp topped the female field with a time of 22:38.
The top prize in the fastest rabbi category went to Rabbi Eve Posen, who completed the 10K in 44:20.
Bagel Run chair Mark Kreditor, the sponsors, the wonderful volunteers and the JCC staff all worked to make this year’s run a huge success, according to JCC fitness and wellness director Jon Mize.
