Three races attract marathoners for Sunrise Run

ROSCOMMON–Roscommon Rotary’s 8th Annual Sunrise Run was hosted June 17.

According to Rotarian Wally Chwan, the weather was decent. “It was not looking good early but things cleared up in time and the runners only got semi-wet.”

“Overall they probably preferred this over 80 degrees and sunshine.”
