Rockland — Few participants did not mean little fun in the Compass road races on Saturday, Sept. 14 around the streets of the city.

There were fewer than expected participants but those who ran or walked had a good time — and supported Oceanside High School students in the process — during the Compass 5-kilometer and 10K events.

Michael Kirby finished first in the 10K, or 6.2-mile run, in 39:32, while Darren Winchenbach was fastest in the 5K, or 3.1-mile portion, in 18:53.

There were four participants in the 10K and 11 in the 5K.

The event was held to raise money for the Oceanside Class of 2021.

The individual results were:

10K — 1, Michael Kirby, 39:32; 2, Justis Leatham, 47:17; 3, Michael Simko, 48:51; and 4, Jay Kennedy 50:20.

5K — 1, Darren Winchenbach, 18:53; 2, Robert-Lucian Ciobanu, 20:42; 3, Cyrus Alley, 20:59; 4, Garrett Simms, 21:27; 5, Jenna Vanryn, 22:53; 6, Kasey Leidenroth, 24:56; 7, Christine Waldron, 26:38; 8, Ashley O’Brian, 27:02; 9, Amy Shepard, 34:48; 10, Amber Wheaton, 35:14; and 11, Ellen Spring, 47:55.

Supporter: Kate Kennedy.

The Oceanside Class of 2021 parent group hosted the event at the Eclipse Restaurant and Event Center. It was part of the school's homecoming weekend.
