Caldwell-West Caldwell Board of Education 5k–May 16, 2015, by Martta Kelly

Normally I don’t run back to back races (two races in one weekend) but I had to make an exception for the Caldwell-West Caldwell Board of Education 5K today as that was my high school. We had a few Essex peeps there today and I believe we all medaled in our respective age groups. Times more »

Cure for IBD & Crohn’s Disease 5k–May 3, 2015 by Aubrey Blanda

I ran the Cure for IBD & Crohn’s Disease 5K in Basking Ridge this morning, and discovered what is apparently one of the best kept secrets around. The race was very well organized, with easy packet pick-up at the start. Plenty of water, breakfast bars, and bananas at the post race table. Very convenient indoor more »

Doug Williams 5000M, Sept. 7, 2014–Mick Close

It was a beautiful day for the Doug Williams Memorial 5,000 Meter run and most people seemed to like the new course from Tierney’s Tavern to Anderson Park and back. Top finishers from the club were Glen Freyer (3rd overall, 18:17), Larry Czaplewski (4th overall, 18:55), Rebecca Walter (2nd women, 21:33) and Karen Merz (4th more »

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

VERONA LABOR DAY CLASSIC 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 more »

Teterboro 5K (or was it?), July 19, 2014–Martta Kelly

Cross the 2.99-mile race off my bucket list!  Yes, that is what we ran today at Teterboro, billed as a 5K but as anyone with a Garmin agreed, fell short.  Oh well, the excitement was short-lived as those of us without running watches approached the finish line and viewed our “best time of the season” more »

9/11 Tribute 5K (Glen Rock, NJ), July 4, 2014–Marrta Kelly

We usually do the Cranford Firecracker on July 4 but we opted to try something new this year.  We got lucky with the weather as the rain held off until the race was finished.  The only negative was the humidity, which affected our finishing times. This 5K course starts and finishes in Veteran’s Park and more »

Ridgewood Run, May 26, 2014–Mark Frankel

This year’s Ridgewood Run was hot and steamy as usual, although slightly less hot and steamy than normal.  It was my first race since my disasterous marathon.  I haven’t done anything fast since then, so it was interesting to see what I could do. I had two objectives going into this race: 1 – Not more »

Apple Chase 5K/10K, Pompton Plains, March 30, by Martta Kelly

I always wanted to try this race because I heard lots of good things about it.  The course is advertised as flat and fast and it is.  There were some logistical issues at the start, though.  For example, participants of both races were asked to line up together, with the 5Kers in front and the more »

Michael Cassidy’s Shamrock ‘N Run–Rutherford, March 15, 2014 by Martta Kelly

The good news first:  All 4 of us medaled. The bad news:  This was one of the toughest 5Ks I’ve ever run.  Three big hills, plus the cold, windy and damp weather didn’t help.  Tough day, for me anyway. Charlie Slaughter–20:23 1st AG John Maxwell–25:43 2nd AG Tom Kelly–27:14 2nd AG Martta Kelly–29:10 3rd AG
