The USATF-NJ racing season kicked off the last weekend in March with a trio of races. Brian Angle, Paul Williams, Julia Scales, Karl Fenske and Kathy Hale participated in the Garden State 10 at Colonial Park in Franklin Township (Somerset). It was a chilly, slightly windy morning, but we warmed up once we started moving. This was a new race, and the organizers had a good turnout for the 5K, the 10-mile and the half marathon challenge.
Team championships kick off with the Indian Trails 20K on April 2. Yes, you read that right, the race is now a 20K; the organizers found another 5K of lovely roads and trails. After Indian Trails, our next team race is the Clinton Country Run on April 29. We usually get a great turnout for this race, and I hope 2017 is no exception. If you’re not up for 15K, there is also a 5K, and the team always enjoys having club members come out to cheer us on!
The RC2 store is currently open – but not for long! Place your orders by April 2. We should have our new gear in plenty of time for the Clinton race.
Make sure that your USATF-NJ membership is up to date, and that your Rose City membership dues are paid!
