At the Races

June Race Results


Another exciting race in Millburn last night with over 1,200 runners and lots of cheering spectators. We fielded two teams in the highly competitive USATF-NJ men’s open championship and our “A” team finished in the top ten with an average time of 18:19 beating out many of the other club teams from Clifton,  Do Run Runners, Shore AC, Morris County Striders, Rose City and Central Jersey. We also had several people win age group awards (Paul Giuliano, Pia Lopresti, Charlie Slaughter, George Studzinski) and several PR’s including Glen Freyer, Ryen Lopresti and Pia Lopresti. Lots of fun at the post race party fueled by the usual Sam Adams beer truck including a cider drink this year as well as the summer ale and Boston lager. Here are many of the ERC finishers showing the chip times with apologies to anyone I missed.

American Cancer Society George Washington Bridge Challenge 10K – Sunday, June 9, 2013
Regina (Jean) Zignorski – 53:25.

The course is great – especially to run over the GWB.  I would highly recommend this event.  Many options to choose from – 5K walk or run, 10K walk or run and bike routes too!


Woodcliff Lake 10K June 9:
Bill Wilde – 52:37 – 3rd AG

Run for Marge Memorial 5K – Sunday, June 9
The 11th annual Run for Marge Memorial 5K (formerly the Run for Marge 5K) was
held in Pequannock starting and finishing in Greenview Park.

The course alternates between some of the major and residential streets in
Pequannock, and briefly enters Lincoln Park. The course, like most of
Pequannock, is very flat. The weather was about as good as you could ask for
this time of year. I think it was in the 70s when the race started (8AM) before
it warmed up. There were two water stops, something I’ve learned not to take for

I’ve always liked this race, because of the flat course, the fact that I once
lived in Pequannock, and that they raffle off a lot of items.

284 runners and walkers took part in the race. There was also a wheelchair

ERC was represented by:
Ed Trieste 27:35
George Studzinski 30:25 (1st AG)

I think I missed some people. If anyone else ran this race, by all means add
your name to the list!

John Theodore Maxwell    11:03am Jun 2
Came in 3rd Annual Christian Brit 5K Run, with the time of 23:58, which is a PR for me. No one else in my age. Times keep improving with each race. Time to move up to a longer race.

Richard Biebel    2:11pm Jun 2
Represented Essex at Tenafly 5K, ran 20:11 on a hot and hilly course. 1st in 60-64, 18th overall.
