ERC Junior Track Series: Registration is Open and Volunteers are Needed

Registration for the 3rd Annual ERC Junior Track Series is now open.  The meets are open to boys and girls ages 4-13, and are designed to introduce children to the sport of running in a low-key and fun atmosphere.   Races include the 50 meter dash for 4 – 6 year olds, as well as distances of 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1 mile.  Field events include the long jump and javelin throw.  The 3 part series will be held on Sundays – June 29th, July 13th, and 27th starting at 5:00 pm, at Hurrell Field in Glen Ridge.  Click here for more information and a link to the registration form –

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  These events are so successful because of the wonderful volunteers we get each time.  Please email me at to let me know if you can help at any or all of the events.  Not to be sappy, but watching these kids run and seeing the smiles on their faces really rejuvenates my running each summer.

Finally, new this year, Fleet Feet will be hosting a Junior Track Series Feeder Program beginning on June 14. This free program is a great way to get junior runners ready for the ERC Junior Track Series! Participants will benefit from working with experienced Fleet Feet coaches, along with Coach Ira Ford of Glen Ridge High School and athlete mentors from the Glen Ridge Track & Field Team.  Click Here for More Information.
