Last to Finish: Everyone does their 5K at their own pace, and how fast you navigate it isn’t nearly as important as how you finish. This year, our final finishers Zeke Zucker and Yuen Chun completed their 5K together, and they’ll each be taking home coupons for three small dishes of gelato at Gelato Fiasco!
Last week, at noon on the 15th of September, the Virtual 5K run and 2K family walk wrapped up, and we’d like to thank all of you again for turning out and showing your support! This week, we’re going to distribute some of the prizes from our sponsors that we talked about a few weeks ago!
So congratulations to all of our prize winners! And to all of you who took part this year, we thank you again. We’re looking forward to seeing you at next year’s event!
Every year the 5K Run and 2K Family Walk sees attendance from newcomers and familiar faces alike. But through all seventeen years of our hosting this event, three runners have made sure to show up. On this week’s blog, we’re going to share with you all a little bit about those three!
In fact, he suggested that we turn our annual event into a Virtual 5K, having experience running them himself! With his friends Yuen Chun and Zeke Zucker in tow, he completed his run this year with a time of 49:28.
Though this year’s 5K was unorthodox, that didn’t stop our runners with perfect attendance from chalking up another successful run and doing their part to keep the Swinging Bridge swinging. So to all three of our all-timers, thank you, and thank you to everyone else who took part this year!

Are you ready to start your run and win some prizes? We’d like to extend our gratitude to some of the gracious sponsors who make our annual event possible, and this week, we’ll turn our eye so some of the restaurants that provide the prizes that can be won this year!
Sea Dog Brewing Co. is located a stone’s throw from the Swinging Bridge, on the Topsham side, and is popular for their locally-brewed drinks and great food!
Wicked Joe is dedicated to using sustainable business practices from crop to cup, making excellent fair-trade coffee right in Topsham Maine. Their Jamaican Me Crazy blend is a personal favorite!
Gelato Fiasco can be found on Maine Street in Brunswick, where you’ll find a rotating menu of terrific Italian-inspired ice creams.
Fairground Cafe in the Topsham Fair Mall serves up comfort food in a rustic, homey atmosphere. If you’ve never had their cheesesteak sandwiches, you should probably fix that.
