The fastest time of the day was from Jared Abuya, of Fairfax, Va., who finished in just more than 32 minutes.
All of the money from the registered runners and walkers and from the event's sponsors will go to APPLES for Children Inc., a nonprofit organization providing child-care referral services, training and technical assistance. Proceeds also will go to Head Start of Washington County, said race director Dick Snyder.
"We're hoping to raise close to $10,000," he said.
Snyder said it is likely the Run Through History could raise more money for those organizations this year due to the additional sponsors the race had. Sponsors included Citi Cards, the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, First Data, Staples and Edward Jones financial services.
"We want to keep it going to raise money for early childhood programs in Washington County," Snyder said.
Top finishers received cash prizes and other runners received door prizes. Snyder said this was the first year that free massages were available for participants following the race.
While he couldn't eat right after finishing the 10K in 38 minutes and 34 seconds Sunday, Brad Rippey picked up a bagel and apple slices for the ride home.
The Bunker Hill, W.Va., resident said he has participated in the Run Through History on and off since 1988. His time Sunday was a bit slower than usual.
Rippey and other runners said the lack of shade on the course took its toll. He said the scenic course keeps him coming back to the race.
"I like the battlefield," he said. "I like the scenery."
