SABATTUS — The Sabattus Rec Club Running Club took first place at the Irish Road Rover 5K race in Portland Sunday, March 13. The total time for the top four finishers for the Sabattus team was more than 16 minutes lower than the second-place team.

Kyle Simmons (17:39), Molly Schassberger (17:43), Steve Dubois (21:30), and Shawn Vincent (23:12) led the way for Sabattus.

Several other Sabattus runners earned age group awards.

The Running Club is open to any and all ages and abilities, for those who would like to get exercise in a supportive, group setting. From recreational walkers to racers, all ages are welcome. The group runs happen every Wednesday night at 6 p.m. Participants meet in front of Mixer’s Nightclub on Sabattus Rd., and can match up with similar-ability participants for 30-45 minutes of walking, jogging, or running. There is no charge and no commitment for attendance.

The group is in its 12th year and is gearing up for a great season.
