Grand Island's Dick Bessel Independence Day road race set another record for participation, race director Jim Masiello told runners at the starting line.

According to Score This!!!, official timers of the race, 14 racewalkers and 587 runners crossed the finish line of the 2.3-mile race.

First across the line was Grand Islander and Geneseo State College graduate Chris Carter in 11 minutes, 9 seconds, followed closely by Columbia's Evan Tsembelis and St. Bonaventure's Nick Masiello. Tsembelis and Carter were 1-2 in last year's race, though the duo seemed to play a game this year to see who could let who win.

There was no doubt who the first woman across the line would be as Tammy Putt of Allegany, pictured at left, was almost a minute faster than the second-place finisher Kacey Bougard of East Aurora.

Below, Tsembelis, Masiello and Carter come down the home stretch behind a police escort.
