The Jersey Shore Running Club’s Summer Series came to a conclusion on Thursday, July 17, 2014. The series was held at the Wall Municipal Complex in Wall Township.
The traditional handicap race was held in the 5K where runners started based on their best time in the 5 race series. It was a fun event with the slower runners given a head start and the faster runners trying to catch them as they made their way around the course which was run in the reverse direction.
After the handicap race series overall and age group winners were recognized and given commemorative awards of miniature chairs fir their accomplishment.
The winners were as follows:
Men Overall 5k
2- Pat Ford
Female Overall 5k
