SOUTHPORT -- After several years of above normal temperatures, the 36th running of the Pequot Thanksgiving Day five-mile race was run in the cold.

The men's division was again contested between Fairfield's Matthew Kane and Henry Wynne, who ran 43 and 36 seconds faster than last year, respectively. But this year Fairfield's Harry Warnick gave Warde a 1-2 finish.

Kane's time was 24:40, the fastest in many years. For the women, Kristen Henehan of Kensington, MD and Cait Bradley ran 30 and 18 seconds faster than last year, respectively, but they were edged by Heather Stephens of Washington, DC, who won in a time of 28:57.

Co-sponsored by Fidelity Investments, ASF Outdoors of Westport, Southport Family Dental, Poland Spring Water, Trinity Episcopal Church and Fred's Car Wash, the race is one of the largest in Connecticut and the largest five-mile race in the state.

The race has benefited organizations including the Wakeman Boys/Girls Club of Southport, Westport EMS , the Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Fairfield Counseling Services , the Laddie Lawrence Scholarship Fund (founded by the Pequot Running Club) at Staples High School in Westport, Westport EMS and the Fairfield Police Explorers.
