Friendship — Talk about a fast, early start to the morning.

Runners had to get up mighty early if they wanted to prepare for "long haul" or "short haul" jaunts around the peninsula during the 26th annual Friendship Day road races on Saturday morning, July 27.

The top two runners in the "long haul" — 5-kilometer or 3.1-mile journey — were familiar to the Midcoast racing scene.

Connor Daigle, 15, of Union finished first in 19:53. The Medomak Valley High School student-athlete has won a handful of area road races this summer.

In second, and the first female, was Naomi Orne, 26, of Rockland, who finished in 20:11.

There were 57 overall runners and walkers in the 5K, which was part of the 33rd annual Friendship Day.

There also was a children/family one-mile "short haul" race.

Landon Starr, 10, of Waldoboro was the first-place finisher in the children's/family's run. Impressively, he also competed in the 5K event, as he was 22nd in 25:11.92.

The children's run began at 7 a.m. and the 5K at 7:50 a.m.
