Fun times and great running at Newport 10k on Saturday, May 14. Despite warm weather we had strong running and a lot of spirit! Here are your RVRR team results: Open Women got 7th, 9th, and 13th, and Open Men got 9th and 14th. Congrats to age group winners Wendy D. Reed, Marcia Hodulik, Lorraine White, Jo Ann Coffee, and Imme Dyson!

 

Our next team race is the College Ave. Mile on June 4th at 5pm. This is an Open Men and Women team race – don’t forget, anyone can run on the open teams! Let your team captain know if you are interested in racing for the team. When you register you choose your mile heat based upon your age and expected time. http://collegeavemile.org/

Although this race is the same day as the “Train”ing run, there is the possibility of participating in both events. Run a shorter distance for the “Train”ing run like the 6mi or 2.8mi option, or volunteer at a train stop, enjoy the RVRR picnic, and then come show off your RVRR speed for the College Ave. Mile!

Miles For Music

On March 20th, the Raritan Valley Road Runners kicked off the USATF-NJ racing season with the Miles for Music 20k.  Race directors and RVRR club members Anne and Joel Simpson created the Miles for Music charity to support music programs in schools. Thank you, Anne and Joel, for all of your hard work in organizing this event!

The RVRR Women’s teams are off to a strong start with the 40s teams getting 4th and 9th, 50s teams getting 2nd and 5th,  and our open team got 5th.

Thank you to everyone who raced for the RVRR teams!

Many club members also volunteered for the event. Thank you for braving the cold weather to support this event. This event would not have been possible without all of the outstanding volunteers!
