Davis Piercy was the Overall Boys Winner, with a time of 9:03

The 11th annual  KAPRB Kid's Cross Country run for children 14 and younger was held July 17 at Anson B. Nixon Park. Runners were able to compete in a 1.5-mile race around the park for no charge.

The children were treated to free ice cream from Baskin Robbins in New Garden after they were done. There were trophies for winners, random prizes for all, and T-shirts.

Course marshalls directed the children and cheered them along, as well as parents and friends lining the course.  

Davis Piercy, 13, from Kennett Square, came from behind to win the race. Anna Iaccoco led the whole way and took the girls division championship over speedy 10-year-old Emma Watson.

Claire Finnfrock, the race director, said, "We had a beautiful evening and 112 children attended and participated in the event. It was a lot of fun for the children in our community." She also thanked sponsors Cari Orthodontics, Sinton Air Conditioning and Heating, Horizon, Iacocca Law, the Mushroom Festival and Kennett Run Charities.
