JSRC General Club Meetings are back! Monday, June 28th at Bar A

Image

Join the JSRC for the long-awaited return of the general monthly club meeting and re-connect with your running friends. Come out and catch up with club members and enjoy good food and drinks while getting caught up on what's coming up next to move the JSRC forward now that the public health emergency has been lifted.

When: Monday, June 28th @ 7 PM
Where: BAR A Beach Cafe area.

We ask that each attendee contributes the customary $5 fee upon arriving at the Beach Cafe area. Given that this is the 1st in-person general club meeting in over a year, the club has decided to subsidize the remaining cost of the venue and food so we can all enjoy a special evening as we return to normal. There will be a cash bar for those who want libations. We want to make this a special event and in additional to presenting the latest with the club and where we are heading in the future, we are planning on some raffle giveaways for those who attend.

In order to accurately estimate the quantify of food needed, we are asking those who plan to attend,  please  Click Here to register so we can properly track and estimate food requirements.

Happy Global Running Day!

What is Global Running Day?
Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. It's mission seems more important than ever right now, as people everywhere attempt to stay active and healthy. During these challenging times, many people are turning to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing.

Run Safe
As you celebrate Global Running Day, it’s important to run only when and where it’s safe to do so for both you and your local community. Running during this pandemic is about keeping yourself and others healthy.

2020 Group Runners Recognized

Image

The JSRC has 6 organized Group Runs each week.  We have 2 on Sunday morning (Bodman Park and Ocean Grove), 1 on Tuesday evening in Long Branch, 1 on Wednesday in Ocean Grove, and 2 on Thursday --mornings in Belmar and evenings in Belmar or Asbury Park.  We are recognizing the Group Run coordinators and 2 runners they have selected from their regular group run to be recognized for their efforts during a very difficult year for all.  The JSRC Group Runs were one of the few activities that the club was able to keep active for most of the past year during the pandemic.  Our group coordinators post a group photo after every run, which helps to motivate everyone that we still have options to get out and run with friends as we wait for races to come back.  

Congrats to the 18 recognized for this past year and keep it up!

Runner Safety Awareness Week is January 18-24

Image

The JSRC would like to acknowledge and support the Runner Safety Awareness Week starting January 18th.  During this week there will be events each day either in person or virtually.  Industry experts and community leaders will gather to talk about how runners can face the road or trail with confidence

The entire calendar of events can be reviewed and registered for by Clicking Here.  We encourage all club members to consider reviewing or attending any that are of interest to you. The list of educational and fitness events range from:  Runner Safety Talks, Storytelling Events, Citizen/Group Runs, Self Defense Workshops, Panel Discussions and Interviews on various safety topics

Statistics:

  • According to Road ID, 122,000 runners a year are taken to the hospital after being hit by cars. (Competitor Running 2014) 
  • 30% of women runners have been followed by a person in a vehicle, on a bicycle, or on foot. (Runner’s World survey 2017) 
  • Of more than 2,500 women surveyed, more than half of those under 30 said they’ve experienced harassment while running. A full 94% of those women said their harassers were men. Female joggers reported that they’d been propositioned, followed or intimidated into changing their routes, and frightened of being assaulted. (Time Magazine 2016)
  • 43% of women experienced harassment while running-- with the number rising to 58% for women over 30. Just 4% of men reported the same. (Runner’s World survey 2017) 
  • 3 women were attacked and murdered within a 9-day stretch while out on a run in the summer of 2016.
