ORC Seaside Half Marathon And 5K

Nearly 900 runners lined up on the boardwalk in Seaside Park for the Ocean Running Club's 41st Annual Seaside Half Marathon and 5K. Runners had some nice fall temperatures for the course along the beach and the bay. Thank you to the many, many volunteers that worked so hard to make it a great event for the race participants.

Kaylan Reabold was the first female finisher, with a winning time of 1:33:21. Dianne DeOliveira (1:35:52) and Joan Totaro (1:35:53) were the second and third place female finishers.

Mike Carriglitto was the overall winner in the 5K race with a time of 18:17. Tanner Jelliff (18:34) and Tom Patchett (18:35) were the second and third place male finishers. Stephanie Laurent was the first female finisher, in a very close race, with a winning time of 20:59.2.
