The Lake Takanassee Summer Series for 2006 will be held once again around Lake Takanassee in Long Branch, NJ.

As usual, the races are held on Monday evenings, with the kid's 1500 meter race at 6:30 PM and the 5K at 6:45 PM and the 5K racewalk at 6:47 PM. The first race of the season will be held on June 19th, the race slated for July 3rd will not be held (Independence Day weekend - we encourage you to run one of the area's road races), and the final race will be held on August 28th.
