2017 No Frills, Just Thrills race series begins June 13! These events are hosted by the South Jersey Athletic Club
It’s time once again for the South Jersey Athletic Club “No Frills, Just Thrills” race series. Our Silver Anniversary 25th year of the “No Frills” series begins Tuesday evening June 13 at 7:00pm with The John McMenamin 10K race (6.2 miles) at Cooper River Park.
The other five nights of races are:
June 27 – 1, 2 or 3 Loop Races Note: due to the length of the 3 Loop race, these all begin at 6:30pm
July 11 – Jerry Nolan 1 Loop (3.65 miles) race at 7pm
July 25 – Harry Berkowitz One Mile Run at 6:40pm and 1 or 2 Loop races at 7:00 pm
August 8 – 1 Loop Prediction race at 7pm
August 22 – 1 Loop race Note: due to earlier sunset in late August, this race also begins at 6:30pm
A schedule for all six nights of this year’s events is available on the SJAC web site here: No Frills, Just Thrills schedule
Come out to run the races, it’s still only a $5 entry fee, $3 for SJAC members and free for full time students!
Don’t want to run? Come and help out by volunteering! We can always use volunteers for these races.
We typically have some runners arrive to sign up by 6:15pm. If you’re available early and want to help with race registration we can use you by not later than 6:15pm and your “job” will be over just after the race starts at 7pm. If you can help out in other areas such as course marshal, water stop, finish line, etc., we’ll need you at least until the last runner finishes (last year that was just before 8pm for the 1 Loop Race). This series is all about fun and having a good time. Often time the club heads to the Cooper House, located at the parking lot just east of our finish area in the stadium.
