Knickerbocker, Anderson win Rolling Bones



BAR HARBOR — Members of Mount Desert Island running clubs work hard on time goals and improving their technique.

But they also have a goofy streak a mile wide.

It was evident in the annual Rolling Bones 5K, sponsored by Eden Athletics and Side Street Cafe, held Saturday in Bar Harbor. Many of the runners and race volunteers were in costume for the occasion, dressing up as everything from fuzzy purple dinosaurs to bananas, sneakers and Harry Potter.

Forty-two people ranging in age from 10 to 77 competed in the race.

Erik Knickerbocker was first across the line in a photo finish with runner-up Judson Cake. Both logged a time of 17 minutes, 50 seconds. Laura Anderson was the winner of the women’s race with a time of 23:01.

The race is the season finale of the Eden Athletics Point Series, which this year included 15 races beginning with the Flattop 5K in April. Runners who competed in 10 or more of the 15 point series races this year are Robin Clarke, Tamara Murphy, Lisa Kearns, Robin Emery and Christopher Heel.
