RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- More than 1,000 women of all ages raced in the rain through the streets of Ridgefield Sunday morning at the Run Like A Mother 5-kilometer road race.

The weather did not dampen spirits or competition, as 1,130 runners braved the chilly rain to finish the race. The event also featured a kids run.

Maria Lauretani of New York won the race in 19:36, followed by Ridgefield's Kristen Lecompte and Jenna Mesgian. Complete results are posted on Fastracktiming.com. Click here for results.

Run Like A Mother was founded by Ridgefield resident Megan Searfoss. The event includes events in Texas, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona and Minnesota. The mission of Run Like a Mother is to fuel a woman’s journey toward health and wellness, empower with education and training programs and inspire with communities, events and races. Races are held on Mother's Day weekend each year as part of the series. Click here for the RLAM website.
