Results From Governors Island 5K

are here. William Hansler, 34, of Brooklyn, captured 3rd place overall in the 5K race with a 16:33 - and was the top "First Responder" (First responder is an active or retired Fire Fighter, Law Enforcement Officer, EMT or Paramedic).

The race attracted more than 600 finishers. After visiting the island for the first time yesterday, I've got to say: This would be a perfect spot to have a NYC championship 5K race. Put a race cap on the field, or set up separate events for specific categories (M/W Open, M/W Masters). Obviously, the logistics of getting everyone out to the island would have to be addressed ... but it's such a short hop from Manhattan or Brooklyn.
