St. Paddy's 5 Miler

 The Freehold Area Running Club's 29th Annual St. Paddy's 5 Mile was held on Sunday, March 18th

CONGRATULATIONS TO FARC AND TO ALL THE RUNNERS - AND THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS!

Here's a great chance to run a nice 5 local 5 Miler - at the Freehold Area Running Club's St Paddy's 5 Miler !

For those of you who've run past St Paddy's 10 Milers, some of those same quiet country-ish roads will be used.

And for anyone who's run past St Paddy's races, FARC Winter Series race and/or FARC Toys For Tots races -  race starts and finishes at the same convenient location of Michael Tighe (Liberty Oak) Park, in Freehold (Georgia Road) - and as with all past FARC races, there'll be plenty of parking, convenient accessible "facilities" and plenty of post-race refreshments - both food and beverage.
St Paddy's races - as with all FARC races - always have great shirts and unique overall and age group awards

With a 28 year history, this is a great local club Spring race tradition to support and enjoy

Sad News - Ralph Aquino

 

 Ralph Aquino Jr (Middletown) recently passed away at the age of 88    OBITUARY

 A long-time member of the Shore Athletic Club and a veteran of the entire running community, Ralph completed 20 straight Boston Marathons and was inducted into the Shore AC's Hall of Fame.  A regular fixture on the awards podium - he was a fierce competitor, but always a friendly guy and a gentlemen at races. A Veteran of the United States Marines and former employee of the US Army, Ralph was respected by his peers and friends not just for his athletic ability, but also (perhaps more so) for his friendship and class.

Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, March 22 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at John F. Pfleger Funeral Home in Middletown, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, March 23 at 10 am at St. Agnes Church, Atlantic Highlands. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Father Flanagan’s Boys Town, NE and St. Labre Indian School, Ashland, MT.
