We have five wonderful hard working athletes headed to the Lake Placid 140.6 Ironman Event this weekend! John Hoer, John Pizzuto, Lisa Pizzuto, Lynn Byrne, and Darlene Sabol. It will be John Hoer and Darlene’s first, brother and sister Pizzuto’s third, and Lynn’s second. Lynn may not have gotten official credit last year but she DID complete the course! To all five, we all hope and pray for your success! WE ALL ARE PROUD OF YOU FOLKS, YOU ARE OUR HEROES!

And that goes for y’all running the WILSON AREA PARTNERS IN EDUCATION 5K and to Steve Mikels if he decides to do the 33RD ANNUAL PISECO LAKE TRIATHLON!

FROM JIM
Hi Rod – We’re making plans for the annual Dave Fleetwood 5k Trail Run/walk. I’d appreciate it if you’d add it to your list of coming events. The official press release is below. Use all or part of it as you wish.
Thanks, Jim Mannello

The West End Park and Open Space Commission is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Dave Fleetwood Memorial Trail Run/Walk at the West End Regional Park on 578 Evergreen Hollow Road in Chestnuthill Township on Sunday, October 7th at 9am.

The 3.1 mile race/walk honors Dave Fleetwood who was tragically killed during a public meeting on August 5, 2013 at the Ross Township Municipal Building, Saylorsburg. Dave was a dedicated public servant and worked diligently for the community. The run/walk is open to all ages and abilities and the new “Dave Fleetwood Memorial Trail” will be available for those wishing a leisurely walk on a firm and stable surface accessible to all wheeled devices.

All proceeds will fund the “Dave Fleetwood Memorial Scholarship” to recognize Pleasant Valley High School graduates who exemplifies the outstanding attributes of Mr. Fleetwood.

The 3.1 mile trail run winds through 240 acres of open space property and includes a flat trail, an open field and woods trails. Walkers are invited to use the 5/8 mile portion of the flat trail, and/or the 3/4 mile field trail or the entire running course.

New This Year a Kid’s Costume Run for kids under 12 yrs. Dress Up in their favorite Super Hero or any other Character and run a ¼ mile loop. Prizes for Outstanding Costumes. Kids rum FREE with an adult registration!

Registrants for the run/walk pay $20 before September 24th and $25 afterward. Awards go to the top two male and female finishers and the top three male/female finishers in each age group. The first 100 pre-registrants are guaranteed an event T-shirt. There will be random drawings of bib numbers for prizes.
