Downtown Westfield 5K

Shore A.C. was well represented, if not in depth, then in quality, at last night’s Downtown Westfield 5K. First among finishers was Dave Hoch, who posted an 18:58. Next was Wayne Baker, in 23:13, whose relative youth made him the only Shore A.C. participant not to take a top 10 placing in his age group. Close behind was Ralph Garfield, whose 23:36 meant that for the first time since his recent 70th birthday, he didn’t win his age group. Sixty-nine year old Dick Hill ran a 24:01. Finally, Elliott Denman, walked the race in 39:25.

Lake Takanassee Summer Series


Every summer, the Shore Athletic Club hosts the Lake Takanassee Summer Race Series. They've done so since 1964, and the list of running royalty who have run the course at Lake Tak is long. It includes: (waiting for some info)

Dr. George Sheehan, the noted running author and philosopher, considered Lake Takanassee to be his running home. He made many references to it throughout his books. Sheehan is remembered with this plaque on the north side of the Lake. Members of the Sheehan family often visit and sometimes run in the races.

St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church has graciously permitted us to use their auxiliary parking throughout the history of the races. Their landmark red church has been used as a landmark for generations of shore area runners.

Details of the current Lake Tak Summer Series can be found here (link not yet enabled).
