9-11 Memorial Run

Atlantic Herald Article by Jim Robbins

Tim Mahoney Leads Runners on the Start of the 9-11 Memorial Run

A most memorable run to memorialize all who were lost on September 11, 2001.  Tim Mahoney led  a group of about 200 runners and instructed them on the event.  The theme was to "run, reflect and resume".  Accordingly the runners kept silent on their run to the 9-11 Memorial in Spring Lake and on to the turn around point on the Sea Girt border on the beach so they could "reflect" on the significance of that day..  At the turn around point  a piece of the World Trade Center was placed and the runners gathered around it.  After reading the final portion of the names of those lost on that tragic day - the runners left flowers and flags.  The runners were then instructed to "resume" their lives and ran back to the start breaking their silent vigil..

Starting Up the First hill at the Brielle Day 10K

Supposedly it has never rained on Brielle Day and this year there was hardly a cloud in the sky.  The cool near autumn weather was ideal for the runners as they made their way through the tree lined streets and trekked up the many hills of Brielle.  The overall winner was Bob Horn of Brick finishing on the left in a time of 34:57.  For the women it was Shyannan Plunkett of Brick finishing on the right in a time of  41:33.  Chelsea Hayes held the finish tape. .

Congratulations to Race Directors Jack and Diane Cheer for organizing a very successful event.  Thanks also to the many volunteers who as usual made the race possible.
