While weather forecasters predicted a soggy race day, the rain held off until late in the annual Brooksie Way half marathon, just before 11 a.m. and after a bulk of the approximately 6,200 runners had crossed the finish line, 11 of them from Plymouth.
An additional eight Plymouth residents participated in the 5K and 10K events as well.
Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, whose late son Brooks Stuart Patterson is the namesake for the event, joked that while the official estimate was about 6,200 runners, he "personally counted 7,000" crossing the finish line.
"Next year we hope to have you all back, and a couple more," he told a lively crowd inside the celebration tent after the race.
