It was a perfect 10 kind of day for the nearly 400 participants in the race that started and finished at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como, N.J.. It was a flat and fast course around the lake into neighboring Spring Lake..

The race kicked off a busy weekend of running. A 5K beginner’s running class will be starting on May 13, 2014. The class is perfect for anyone who would like to run their first 5K - click here for more information. Upcoming events are posted on The Race Calendar.
