At the Races

Montclair 10K and 2M, June 1, 2014–Mick Close

Fun time at the 32nd annual Montclair Run on Sunday. Perfect weather this year and so many club members cheering, volunteering and running. Hard to believe this was my 30th time running the 10K! These were some of the highlights.

Over 500 finishers in both the 2 mile race and the 10K! (The 2 mile race has really expanded the past few years.)
> Nice lightweight tech shirts that many people wore for the race!
> 12 year old club member, Ashby Sundown, finished second overall female in the 2 mile in 13:46!
> Other notable performances by some of our kids 
in the 2 mile race were 10 year old Carter Robik in 17:13 and 10 year old Avery Eaton in 18:23!
Henry Whipple finished second overall in the 10K in 35:36. Henry is a senior at Montclair High School and son of club member, Jane Whipple!
> Many club members won age group awards in the 10K – Dorothy Auth and Howie Brown (1st), Dan Smith (2nd), Patrick McAdams, Kevin Dibble, Glen Freyer, Grant Van Inwegen, Andrea Silk (3rd)!

Club president, Paul Maloney, was the honorary race starter in recognition of the club’s 30th anniversary!
> Troy Powell, ERC board member and Montclair fireman, ran the 10K in full uniform!

> Cheerleader extraordinaire, Laura Messina, showing up all over the course to cheer and wave her pom poms! (Where was Randy?)
> Bacon bits cheering section at the corner of Midland and Walnut giving runners a final boost to the finish!
> Being passed by a 12 year old coming around the final corner of the race and hearing shouts “Come on Mick, he’s in your age group!”
