Upcoming Hosted Runs, Wednesday and Thursday Evenings

We continue our summer runs in July and August.  Hosts plan a 3-6 mile run with a light supper afterwards.  The runs welcome everyone from walkers to “speed demons”!!  We will find a distance and company for you.  New members— it’s a great way to find out what our club is about!  We are currently accepting reservations for August.

We would like to recognize those members who go to 100% or close to 100% of our hosted runs.  For attendance at our hosted runs, we are establishing a reward points system.  At the end of August, the member or members who are at all or most of our hosted runs will be awarded prizes (to be announced).  It a great way to socialize, meet other members, and exercise during the spring and summer.

The club is off to a good start with our “$2620 Fund” at our weekly hosted runs.  As we previously communicated, the Essex Running Club will make an initial donation of $262.00 to “symbolize” the marathon distance of 26.2 miles.  Included with this $262.00 donation, the club will “match” any donation given by a club member.  Our goal for the end of the summer is for the club and members to donate a total $2,620.00, again to “symbolize” the marathon distance.  So far we’ve had great runs at George Studzinski’s “Battle at the Beach”, Laura Barry’s run at Felician College, and Troy Powell’s run in Caldwell.
