A 30-year-old man from Watertown won Saturday’s Chris Corbett 5K, running the course in a total time of 18 minutes and two seconds.
The event, which entered its fourth year, raises thousands for scholarships for area students. Andy Shea, a Holy Cross High School alum, took first place in the event, which drew hundreds of runners from the area, including police officers.
Corbett, the police department’s deputy chief, died tragically in 2015. He had been a student at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts and was a track captain at Holy Cross High School. Race organizers, including his family and police, established the 5K and the Christopher D. Corbett Memorial Fund to honor him.
The following racers were the top five finishers in Saturday’s race: Andy Shea, 30, of Watertown, Mario Longo, 47, of Cheshire, Tim Fahey, of Pennsylvania, Adam Pepin, 18, of Waterbury and Fujie Lan, 18 of Watertown.
