Thanks to everyone for your generosity to the JSRC Adopt a Family event. We had lots of gifts and donations that will make for a Merry Christmas for seven families.
Our wrapping event had a smaller than usual staff that worked hard on the gifts. Thanks to everyone for your time.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
The JSRC and Race Committee lead by race directors, John O'Gorman and Karen Kelly, should be proud of the event they pulled off given all of the constraints and barriers from the COVID-19 public health emergency. Last minute state restrictions on outdoor gatherings even made it more complicated, but the reduced runner limits and distances went off without a hitch and anyone who gave a review about the 5k and 10k race was mostly positive and just happy the JSRC could help everyone get out there and feel a little more normal while running safely with friends.
Thank you to everyone involved and thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make this a safe event for all. Click Here for more information on the recap of the event. Click Here for results.
The JSRC would appreciate any support of our sponsors and partners in the community as they re-open their businesses. All of our race sponsors and partners have always supported our club and its members by promoting and supporting our races and the races in the towns that we all participate in. This is the time for our club members to show our appreciation and do whatever we can to support our partners.
The JSRC appreciates the continued support of our sponsors and partners.
The JSRC participated in the Runner Safety Awareness Week as events were held each day in either New York City, all of the boroughs, Boston and Ocean Grove, NJ Industry experts and community leaders gathered to talk about how runners can face the road or trail with confidence
On Sunday, January 26th, the JSRC held a "Citizen Run" during the normal weekly Sunday Runday Group Run in Ocean Grove, NJ. We were honored to be joined by Kelly Herron. Through her organization "Not Today", Kelly promotes runner safety and personal protection. Her advocacy efforts landed her on the November cover of Runners' World and she also stars in their documentary entitled, "Not Today", which will have an upcoming release date. Thank you to all the JSRC and She Run's members that came out and supported the event.
