Here are members of the Run 169 Towns Club before the Hartford Marathon Foundation Pumpkin Run 5K, which took off from the Higganum Green Oct. 23, 2016, in Haddam. The first female to cross the finish line was Molly Sullivan of Cheshire, with 21:49 (a 7:02-minute mile). First-place champion Chris Mayer of Middlefield ran the hilly and challenging course in 17:30 (5:38 minutes per mile). Proceeds from the 3.1-mile race, which drew 356 runners, benefit Haddam-Killingworth Youth and Family Services. Children took part in the half-mile HMF Fit Kids race at Haddam Elementary School.
