Liberty Half Marathon

Liberty Half Marathon, September 20, 2015 The weather is always key for this race – we’ve had rain and puddles, humidity, heat…this year might be one of the best year’s in memory for the weather. More than 2000 runners competed in this race around Jersey City. Rose City entered two teams – the 40s men placed 9th and the 60s men placed 7th. Congratulations to all! Michael Gentile 1:41:23 Lou Grunfelder 1:43:56 (7th, 60-64) Kim Reidy 1:46:19 Michael Lin 1:50:42 Paul Williams 1:50:53 Ken Natalie 2:07:55 George Grosso 2:39:38 Richard Helmer 2:14:12


Belmar was quickly followed by the first cross-country race of the season on August 30 at Natirar. Natirar is a Somerset County park, and is a beautiful setting – when you don’t have to run up (and down) the hills! More than 330 runners turned out for another hot and humid August race. The course starts out across the grass, then is mostly on cinder and gravelly paths. There is a HUGE hill in the first mile (I heard someone say that hill climbed 210 feet), then runners sped down the hill, and then up another hill that seemed even bigger! Downhill again, around the field, up a little hill and down to the finish. A very challenging location for this cross-country race. Welcome to Beth Nel

Belmar 5K

The Rose City Racing Team kicked off the second half of the season at the Belmar Chase 5K on August 22. We had a great turnout for this men’s team championship race. August at the shore – what would you expect for weather? Yes, it was pretty warm, but more than 1,100 runners took to the streets of Belmar for the race. We ran a loop through some neighborhoods, then finished on a loooong straightaway along the boardwalk and beach. I kept watching for the big American flag and the red archway at the finish line! Rose City entered two teams– the 40s Men came in 9th and the 50s Men came in 10th. Congratulations! We also had a couple of age group places for the ladies (see full results belo
