Updated: Oct 7, 2019

Craig Wood and Erica Preston emerged as the Overall Male and Female Run leaders on Saturday as the Fall Patriot Run-Walk was held in Ogdensburg out of the Ed Dobisky Memorial Community Center.

Wood representing the Male 46-59 Division turned in a time of 21:20 and Preston representing the Women's 46-59 division crossed the finish line in 23:57. The top male walker was Jessie Sovie in 45:39 and and the top female walker was Megan Cutway in 48:52.

Race Director Al Mooney thanked all the participants of the event which raises funds to purchase wreaths for the Memorial Day ceremony at Groulx Park.

Ogdensburg's Renown taxidermist Larry Vielhauer, a former high school distance running champion, picked the event to make his first race in several years.

"It is a great cause and I just wanted to participate and help out Al. I haven't done a race in a long time so I walked with Al and his wife Frida, When we reached the high way on the way in and I stepped it up because I wanted to make sure I put in a full effort," said Vielhauer.

Mooney indicated that he would also hold the Spring Patriot Run at the Dobisky Community Center.
