While the candidates for governor met for their first debate on Monday, Lieutenant Governor candidate and Worcester Mayor Tim Murray went for a run. He ran the city's annual 3.1 mile "Mayor's Run/Walk" in just under 30 minutes alongside more than 80 other runners and walkers.
On Monday night, they came from throughout the suburbs and as far away as New Hampshire to hit the course. Marathon running legend Bill Rodgers, who lives in Boxboro, was there and finished with a time of 26:44. Worcester State Representative Bob Spellane finished in just over 22 minutes and Worcester City Councilor Rick Rushton finished in about 25 minutes.
Veteran Worcester City Councilor Gary Rosen walked the course. For a complete list, visit :
Next week's race starts at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at 226A Chandler St. (in front of John & Son II deli).
