The 14th annual John May Mile was a family affair Saturday under beautiful clear skies.

Over 40 members of the May family were in attendance, several of whom wore tutus in celebration of Jennifer May-Reddy’s 40th birthday. Ms. May-Reddy, who lives in Brooklyn, is John May’s eldest grandchild.

Jack May of Guilford, Vt., who is John May’s son, was the first place finisher in the 5K, crossing the finish line in 18 minutes, 17.09 seconds. Laura Brown of Westhampton was the top female to cross in 20:54.67.

More than 100 runners participated in the race, which raised $21,200 for the Greenport Fire Department.

Dr. Z. Micah Kaplan was the recipient of Peconic Landing’s 2019 Older Americans Champion award.
