The heat and humidity couldn't prevent veteran runner Dave Berdan from capturing his third straight Arbutus Firecracker 10K race on Independence Day.

Berdan, an Owings Mills resident, won the 35th annual race, which started and finished at Arbutus Middle School, in a time of 33:44.5.

Last year, in much cooler conditions, he won the race in 32:15.5.

Berdan, who captured the Baltimore Marathon in 2013 and 2015, won the Firecracker 10K for the sixth time since 2007.

Catonsville High graduate Ty Stump, a Firecracker 10K winner in 2012 and 2013, was second (34:00.8) and Eric Schuler, of Laurel, was third (34:42.9).

Erin McDonald, of East Lansing, MI., was the top female runner (38:51.4). Vickie Brun, of Ellicott City, was second (43:05.3) and Melisha Neal, of Bowie, was third (44:06.8) in the women's race.

There were 409 entries and 345 finishers in the race organized by Valerie Stocksdale.

The Arbutus community kept the runners cool with sprinklers and hoses along the race route.

"There were a lot more sprinklers out and a lot of crowd support, so I really do appreciate that and I know the runners do appreciate that too," Stocksdale said.
