BAR HARBOR — Saturday’s rain held off long enough for the 33 participants in the annual Rolling Bones 5K to keep their fur — and other costume elements — dry.
Dressed as a cat, Rebecca Geib of Bar Harbor was the first across the line, with a time of 20:45. Geib has had a strong season, winning the Cadillac to Katahdin virtual run and finishing first in her age division and first among Mount Desert Island women in the MDI Marathon.
On Geib’s heels was Dylan Brann of Bar Harbor, the 2016 Rolling Bones champion, with a time of 21:03. He ran the race this year in an inflatable dinosaur costume — though by the end of the course, the dino’s head was flapping behind him like a hoodie hood.
Logan Blanchette, 13, stayed true to the race name and ran in a skeleton suit. Elissa Chesler was a moose. Anne Kneeland dressed as the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, pushing her daughter Tess in a jogging stroller and holding up a vintage pocketwatch as she crossed the finish line.
Rolling Bones used to be the final race in the Eden Athletics Points Series, but this year the series extends through the FBC Fall Trail Race Nov. 3 in Sullivan, the Veterans’ 4-Miler Nov. 11 in Ellsworth and the Millinocket Half Marathon Dec. 8. Eden Athletics runners get points for races that they participate in throughout the year beginning with the Flat Top 5K in March.
