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 below). Carol Angle and Pam Helmer comprised our cheering section for this race – thanks!
Several team members made a day of it and hit the beach after the race. A great way to celebrate the start of the fall season!
