ICC (Inter Club Competition) is back: July 26
Posted: June 17, 2015 by Norman Chester
Plans are being made to defeat our rival running clubs (again!) on Sunday, July 26 at 9 am at Veterans Memorial Park in Passaic.
Arrive before 8:30 for a 9 am start. Due to the nature of the competition (see below), they need time before the race to provide handicap / start time and distribute bib numbers.
Location: Veteran's Memorial Park, Passaic Ave. Passaic, NJ. Starts at the upper parking lot. Race will be 3 laps of the park or about 5K.
Competition: Essex, Clifton, Rose City, Do Run Run, and Geezers.
This is an informal / unofficial club competition; no fees, no t-shirts, no goodie bag. Every runner counts! C25K graduates are welcome. Once again, it’s FREE.
This run is handicapped based on age and sex (WAVA tables), so the oldest and most feminine start first. The young males start many minutes back. Everyone else in-between. Every finisher counts for the best club! Everyone has a shot to be the first runner in. Runners' finishing positions are added up for club scoring. Each person will need to count their our laps!!
Also, as in prior years, NJM will stock tables with loads of refreshments and stuff to make a late-morning / mid-day picnic of it. We will need help with this. Debi Brathwaite is coordinating. Coffee, water, and bagels & donuts will be provided pre-race.
If you can't run please come and volunteer! We need assistance manning the intersections, water tables and finish line area.
Please let Debi Brathwaite know if you can attend and what you can bring. Any questions, please contact Debi Brathwaite or Norm Chester.
