The Newport 10K always draws a big crowd of runners. There is an elite category, and prize money is awarded. Nearly 2,000 runners participated in the race this year. Rose City entered one men’s team in the open competition and placed 13th out of 23 teams. Several of our racers placed in the top 10 in their age groups as well. Although I was not present, I heard a rumor that several of our runners enjoyed an adult beverage at the NJ Beer gathering after the race. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Next races are the College Avenue Mile on June 4th (open men and women), the New Milford 5K on June 18th (masters men and women) and the Fitzgerald’s Lager Run on June 26th (open men). See you there!
