ST. GEORGE — After a year sidelined due to the pandemic, the 10th Blueberry Cove 13.1-mile road race was off and running bright and early Sunday morning, Aug. 29, back with a cap of about 100 runners, for safety purposes, for the half-marathon distance.

Matt Dynan, 24, of Cambridge, Mass. finished first in a course record 1 hour, 12 minutes and 38 seconds, as he outdistanced runner-up John Decker, 25, of Parkland, Fla., who crossed the course in 1:14:39. Dynan had a mile pace of 5:33.

Katie Ferguson, 38, of Caribou was the fastest female finisher in 1:42:50, as she finished 14th overall.

As usual, the event, which had 103 finishers, drew people from far and wide.

The race course started and finished at the Blueberry Cove Camp and runners trekked through portions of Martinsville, Tenants Harbor, Glenmere and Port Clyde, including close to Marshall Point Lighthouse.

The event raises money for the University of Maine system’s 4H camps and learning centers at Tanglewood in Lincolnville and Blueberry Cove, which include adventures and school programs to help youth “become creative stewards of an interconnected world.”

“To see the race come back after last year’s COVID cancellation made my heart sing,” said Steve Cartwright, event organizer. “To see the excitement and happiness of runners and their families socializing together, safely, was just great. Big thanks to local volunteers and businesses. It couldn’t happen without them. And all proceeds help kids have a summer camp experience at Blueberry Cove and Tanglewood.”
