At the Races

Verona Labor Day Classic, September 1, 2014–Mick Close


Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped make yesterday’s race another great success. There were 119 finishers in the 1 Mile and 507 in the 5K, slightly down from last year, but I think the hot and humid weather may have reduced the number of race day registrations. The club receives $1,000 from the proceeds of the race which we always donate to some charitable cause connected with the club and for the past few years we have used this money to support the Doug Williams Memorial Scholarship at Montclair High School. Several club members were among the top finishers in the 5K. Paul Giuiliano was 4th overall and the top male masters finisher in 17:46 while Andrea Silk was 5th overall woman and top female masters finisher in 22:04. Jackson Bangs also placed in the top 10 finishing 9th overall in 18:38 while Larry Czaplewski finished 13th overall in 19:17.
