Northborough – Corridor Nine Regional Chamber of Commerce held its annual 5K Road Race in conjunction with the town of Northborough's Applefest celebration Sept. 15. The race was sponsored by Shrewsbury Health and Racquet Club (SHARC) and the Community Advocate. Runners were treated to refreshments provided by the finish line sponsor, Wegmans Food Market.

Finishing first was Paul Noone, 38, from Worcester, with a time of 15:54, and the first-place woman finisher was Nancy Proulx, 27, of Northborough, with a time of 19:49.

For the last five years, Corridor Nine has invited Central Mass. high school cross country teams to compete in the race and then awards trophies to the first-place boys and girls teams. Algonquin Regional was the winner this year, with both the boys and girls teams taking home the first-place trophy.
