PHOTOS (Coming Soon!!)
We are grateful for our skilled volunteer photographers Ilya and Belinda. Photos to be posted on our LAST EMAIL of the year soon.

THANK YOU to everyone who traveled near and far to participate in our events. 
Thank you to Terry Mullane and USATF NJ and all our runners who participated this year  - we appreciate your support!!

Staging a race is a bit like preparing for a theatrical production.....minus the dress rehearsal. We work very hard to insure that every station is staffed by volunteers, food is provided, water ordered and delivered, emergency crews on standby, toilet facilities on site and on the course, etc., etc., etc. The list is endless with exceptional individuals orchestrating the behind the scenes effort. We prepare for race day and hope, hope, hope that all goes as planned because there are NO 'Do-Overs"!! 

Thank you Clinton Township New Jersey for supporting the Clinton Township Country Run!! 

At this time I would like to recognize some of the 'exceptional individuals behind the scenes'...  Thanks to Tom Silvia, Clinton Township Recreation Director for personally supporting the Clinton Township Country Run for the past 16 years. Steve Will and Barbara Gallagher also with Clinton Township Recreation Department for attending to numerous minute details whenever they have been asked AND helping to facilitate financial and technical details (ie. anything related to my computer!). Clinton Township Department of Public Works crews work tirelessly for weeks leading up to the race to beautify Bundt Park and it shows! Thank you!

Thirty High School youth and members from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (North Hunterdon High School, Voorhees High School, Del Val High School) assembled 1000 Bibs for the three races.

I would also like to thank all the youth from North Hunterdon High School INTERACT club who participated on race day. Our Student lead for her third and final year was Jess M. with advisors Dina Marron and Anthony Petraglia. Jess has done a fantastic job for the past three years, we wish her much success in her future endeavors. The INTERACT students were responsible for water tables, awards, T-shirts, finish line support and registration runners. We could not have done it without you!

Vicky and Rich Yee have done a wonderful job staffing our Walk-in Registration position for the past 16 years. Bravo! See you next year!! Thank you to Julie and Roger Davis who stepped in to lead the Awards Ceremonies. What a great job!! Roger and Julie managed to recognize the efforts of all our runners, were sensitive to those who had been left off the master list and kept the Ceremonies going in a timely manner. Thank you!

Additionally, we are grateful to the many members of our community, Weichert Realtors, Hill Runners of Hunterdon, Annandale Hose Company, Clinton Township Police and Fire Departments, Franklin Township Police, Clinton Town Police and members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who volunteered their time to staff Timer positions, Course Marshall positions, Water Tables, Registration tables, Awards, T-shirts and Safety positions to insure that all who visited Clinton Township and who participated in any of our race events were welcomed and cared for. THANK YOU!!! 

We received GENEROUS donations from Clinton area businesses this year as well as the fifteen previous years - ShopRite, Rita's Italian Ice, Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds of Clinton. We benefitted from the services of Doctor D Entertainment, Dave Cohen - Bagpiper, Crown Trophy of Flemington, Garden State Apparel and CompuScore. 

THANK YOU to John Lertola, Race Founder, Wendy Lertola (long suffering but totally supportive wife) Arlene DeNovia (Mom-in-law), Ben and Madison Lertola for your patience and family foundation of the Clinton Township Country Run. Thank you to my sweet and talented husband, Scott Price for another great T-shirt design and for leading the 5k race.
