Sat, April 23, 2016; Start time: 10am @ Bar Anticipation 16th Ave Lake Como, NJ 

Early Shirt Pick-up: Bar A, Friday Night, April 22 5:30-7:30pm 

Race Day Registration & Check In: 8:30 am @ Bar Anticipation


The JSRC has been approached by a club member, who is a teacher and women’s track coach at Asbury Park High School. She requested that we might do a worn (not worn out) running shoe drive for her athletes. The school funds the trips to meets, judges etc., but does not supply her runners with shoes for cross country/track. Some of her athletes cannot afford to buy the quality shoes needed so are running in the same sneakers for practice, meets and just getting around.

The Lake Como 5K run is in the next two weeks and we would like to make the race our shoe drive. All sizes and types are welcome (men or women’s). We have arranged with our host, Bar Anticipation to offer a FREE BEER to anyone who brings a pair of gently used running shoes. You will receive a ticket when you deliver the shoes which you can claim for a beer at the post race party/barbeque.

So, let’s all look in those closets and clear out a few pairs to make room for your new Spring wardrobe. Many thanks to all that participate……….pass the word  !!

About the Race, out 12th year as the Lake Como 5K formerly the Spring Break 5K. Fast flat course out and back from Bar Anticipation. Entirely in Lake Como and Spring Lake, the course follows Main St. to the North side of Lake Como, along the lake to a turnaround back to Main St. than to the south side of Lake Como in Spring Lake, along the lake to Ocean Ave at the beachfront then through scenic Spring Lake working back to Main St. then back to the finish at Bar A. Free post-race barbeque with beer/drink/soda specials and awards ceremony to follow.

Monies raised go to the Wishing Tree of Lake Como at Christmas, the Grania Maggio Study Abroad Scholarship Fund and various other JSRC Charitable events.

Thursday Group Run Update: Asbury Park Test Run

Starting Thursday March 10, 2016 we will be meeting at Asbury Park Convention Hall for our Group Run.  There are bathrooms inside and you can park for free in the lot next to the Wonder Bar.  This will allow us to avoid the streets and run entirely on the boards.  We will try this out and see how it works.  We plan to move back to Belmar when the bathrooms there open.
