EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- More than 825 runners and walkers participated in the inaugural Eastchester 5K Race on Sunday, Sept. 28.

The male winner was Michael Nobles, a Bronxville resident, and the first female winner to cross the finish line was Katie Waters, a 1999 graduate of Eastchester High School, who now lives in Florida. She is also the sister of Eastchester High School physical education teacher Jesse Waters.

Prizes were awarded to the top male and female finishers in 14 age groups, ranging from 12 and younger to 60-plus.

Sponsored by the Eastchester Irish American Social Club, the race raised $10,000 to support new bleachers and press box for Eastchester High School.
