Eleven-year-old Victoria Gray was the womens 1-mile winner in Bainbridge Youth Services’ 34th July 4th Fun Run.

She finished the race in 7:22.

Thomas Delgado, 18, claimed the title for the men in 5:44.

Race day featured a 1-mile run and a 5k run/walk, and there was perfect running weather, just cool enough and dry. Organizers said a total of 639 runners ran in the two races this year, with an additional 75 kids out at the Kid’s Dash.

Marina Cofer-Wildsmith, executive director of Bainbridge Youth Services, said the nonprofit came out a winner, as well.

“We experienced our highest levels of pre-registrations and a 17 percent increase in revenue this year to support our no-cost youth counseling program,” Cofer-Wildsmith said.

“We want to thank the community and our sponsors for their ongoing support,” she said.

Bainbridge Youth Services also congratulated the individual and group winners for their energy and participation.
