WAYNE — The Passaic County Runners' Club had an outstanding showing at Wayne's 4th Annual Packanack Lake 5k Race this past Saturday.
ROAD RACERS — Members of the Passaic County Runners Club withstood the heat and humidity this past weekend to finish the 4th annual Packanack Lake 5K Race in Wayne.
Following the Kid's Fun Run, more than 277 runners braved searing temperatures and high humidity to complete 3.1 scenic miles through the Packanack Lake Community.
Many community residents cheered the runners along, offering relief with lawn sprinklers, water pistols and water stops along the way. Dave Appaluccio, Jessica Reed, and Ellen Lurz all took top honors in their age categories. Ross Mistretta, PCRC's team captain and Jane Simpson, took second place in their respective age groups. Bill & Ellen Lurz earned first place as the "fastest couple."
PCRC teammate Ken Autore ran the Beemerville, NJ Fire Department 5k this past Sunday and crossed the tape in 21:48 and placed 3rd in the entire field. For more information about the PCRC team, please contact Ross Mistretta at firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to adding new members to our group.
