Wednesday Running Events Going Strong: Options for Speedwork, A Salute to the R2C, Ice Cream, Strength Workouts, and Famous Essex County Parks

Our summer hosted RUNNING EVENTS continue each Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. (Most of the EVENTS will now have “speedwork” options. You can do a distance run/walk or take part in some speedwork. We’ll keep you updated from week to week.)

Wednesday, July 29th, 7:00 p.m. – Martta and Tom Kelly, “A Pleasant Valley Run”. 81 Seaman Road, West Orange. We have a couple of “events” going on at Martta and Tom’s. First, we’re having a little “send off” cake for the ERC’s upcoming participation in the 20th River to Sea Relay. (As was mentioned several times before, Tom will be participating 19 of 20 R2C’s.) You can also do a run or walk that Tom and Martta are planning or you can take part in a speedwork session being planned by Don Manfria and Ryen LoPresti. (Don and Ryen will plan your workout according to what you are training for.) Once again, run or walk the courses that Martta and Tom plan or try some speedwork. Be sure to come and celebrate the upcoming 20th R2C.

Wednesday, August 5th, 7:00 p.m.- Paige Sato and Laura Barry, “Ice Cream Sundae Run”, 24 Edgewood Road, Glen Ridge. It seems like more and more of our members are from Glen Ridge! We hope you can come! Yum….Yum….Yum….

Wednesday, August 12th, 7:30pm, [not 7:00pm]- From Tracy Keller: “PEOPLE! My awesome friends at Architect Studios are hosting a special ERC workout (to replace our weekly hosted run). It’s High Intensity Interval Training–think kettle bells, lunges, squat jacks, high knees–with cool music, motivation, and FUN, FUN, FUN. $10 per person and space is limited. Must register in advance on their site. You won’t regret it. They’ve made my running so much stronger! (To register – scroll to August 12 with the “next” button. Look for “” — only room for 12 peeps!)”.

Wednesday, August 19, 7:00 p.m. – Applegate Farm Run, Applegate Farm, 616 Grove Street, Upper Montclair.- Meet in the parking lot to the left of the main building and hang out for ice cream after the run. Planned course is 4 miles through Yantacaw and Brookdale Parks. (Ice Cream will be at your expense.) More Yum….Yum….Yum….

Wednesday, August 26, 7:00 p.m.- Val Kenny and Ginny Kientz, Verona Park Run, 77 Fairway Avenue, Verona, 7:00 p.m. Historically, one of the most favorite places for the ERC to run! A great hill to and from the park!

Wednesday, September 2, 7:00 p.m.- John and Faye Harvey, Branch Brook Park Run, 768 Lake Street, Forest Hill section of Newark. Another historically favorite park for the ERC to run! A great place to finish our summer running events!
