Reebok Grand Prix

Volunteers Welcome - June 2nd - Randall's Island.

We need 35 to 40 JSRC members and their friends to volunteer at the 3rd Annual Reebok Grand Prix Track and Field event
on Saturday, June 2, 2007. The event is at a world class track and field event venue at Randal's Island in NY City.

We volunteered at this event last year and have been invited back by event organizers. No previous experience is necessary as the
tasks involved all the way from selling tickets to the event, handing out programs, escorting the runners to the start, and general
setup of the event logistics.

For all volunteers last year, Reebok provided a pair racing running shoes, a golf shirt and a hat. Also provided were snacks and drinks.

The club will coordinate a luxury bus to bring us there and back. It will be from Lincroft/Red Bank GSP commuter parking lot. The
cost of the bus trip will be $20. Club will provide additional soda and snacks for the trip. The event starts at 5 pm and goes until 9 pm.

The bus will leave the commuter lot at 2 pm so we are there around 3 pm to help with the organization. We will leave after the event completes.
This is your chance to see world class athletes up-close and in person and also see potential world records set.

If you are interested in volunteering, send email to Raman  at

A crowd of over a thousand runners came out to honor Long Branch Police Officer Patrick King at the Annual Sgt Pat's 5K Race held in Long Branch, NJ.

Sgt King was slain in the line of duty several year's ago and the race which was formerly the St Patty's Day 5K was renamed in his honor.

Kid's Races were also held inside of Seven President's Park and the Easter Bunny was on hand to greet them as they finished.

A post race party was held at the Celtic Cottage.

JSRC and Dunkin Donuts Perfect Together

The Club has been approached by Dunkin Donuts to participate in a new National Ad Campaign featuring people and groups that "Run on Dunkin".  Dunkin's Theme is "America Runs on Dunkin" and The Club and Dunkin Donuts also share Orange in their Official Colors.  

This coming Thursday at the regular JSRC Thursday Evening Club Run Dunkin Donut's Advertising Company (Hill, Holiday) will be at the Dunkin Donuts store in Belmar on Ocean Avenue filming a promotional video.  The Producers will select 10 people to participate in a video which will be part of the national promotional campaign.  The advertising company has asked us to collect  short essays from those who are interested on "Why I Run on Dunkin" - it must be short enough to fit in  a 30 second clip.  We will then submit them to Hill, Holiday for a pre -screening.  Entrants will be taped reciting their essay on Thursday at 6 PM at Dunkin Donuts and the top ten will be selected based on the essay, the uniqueness and character of the presentation - they have emphasized that uniqueness is most important and are looking for people wearing unique clothes, costumes, hair, etc.  

The ten winners will receive Unlimited Dunkin Donuts beverages for One Year.

So put your thinking cap on and send in your short essay on "Why I Run on Dunkin" to and then stop by Dunkin Donuts this Thursday. Spectators are also welcome. Submissions must be received by 9 AM DST,  Tuesday, April 3rd - You must pre register. Include your name and address.  All participants will be required to sign a waiver and must be at least 18 years of age..
