Boyd Carrington of Amityville outlegged Robis Degirmenci of Port Washington to the finish line of the third annual “Blue Ribbon 5 Kilometer Run,” as 372 runners and walkers were on hand at the Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course in Woodbury on Sunday, Nov. 13. This Integrated Medical Foundation event helps promote better Men’s Health and helps draw attention to the importance of early detection of prostate cancer.
The Run was once again presented by Integrated Medical Foundation and its Executive Director Rhonda Samuel, with race management services provided by the Greater Long Island Running Club. Ms. Samuel was one of the participants in this year’s Run, completing her first race ever in a very creditable time of 31:08.
In addition to Carrington, other local runners winning awards at the Blue Ribbon 5K Run included Greg Karl of Massapequa Park and Glenn Morse of Massapequa, who finished first and third respectively in the 60-64 age group.
