Benefactor #3: Pete's Feats: Be sure to bring your unused or unwanted sneakers and t-shirts to the Winter Series. Peter Englehardt will collect them from the drop box after each race and share them with the patients of Greystone State Psychiatric Hospital. For information on Pete you'll have to catch up with him at a 5K near you. Go Pete!!!
Why run the Winter Series?: Besides helping to support the PCTi Educational Foundation and fund the Passaic County Runners' Club budget (which is used to support the club's involvement in other local events and in turn various other charities) you will absolutely love it, the people and the comradery that has developed over the last four seasons is quite telling.
The course is moderately challenging. However its completely closed to traffic. Inside there are a number of places to stay warm and use the facilities as needed. Lets also not forget about the piping hot "Bagel Stop" bagel you get after each and every race.
Those who have run the Winter Series always come back the following year. The Custodians of this Passaic County campus do a spectacular job keeping the roadways clear. PCTi also has their own police force which is complemented by the Passaic County Sheriff's Office whose HQ and Training facilities are on compound and just around the corner. Talk about safety!!!.
If thats not enough... just find someone who has run the Winter Series. They'll tell you why! You can also checkout David Franz of the Highland Hashers kickin it in 19:26!!!
