JerseyMan Triathlon Volunteers Needed!

Jersey Man TriathlonRace Director and local Ironman celebrity Ray Campeau is looking for volunteers to assist with the operation of the JerseyMan Triathlon Festival on May 18th at Spruce Run State Park in Clinton, NJ. If you have never volunteered at a triathlon before, this is a great way to get an up front and in your face view of the race as it happens. Triathlon race directors rely on volunteers to help make these events happen and this is another fun way to give back to the community.

For each CJTC member who volunteers, Ray will make a $25 contribution to the club which helps us host more club events throughout the year. Please contact us and let us know you would like to volunteer and we will contact you with more details as the event gets closer.

The second opportunity to volunteer is to assist CGI Racing in the operation of the race. For each one of our club volunteers on the race course, CGI Racing will be making a $25 contribute to the We Dream Team charity.

Finally.. The run is on!

Mother Nature is finally going to be nice to CJTC and give us nice weather for running!!!!

Date: Saturday March 2nd
Time : 9am
Location: Tamaques Park on Lamberts Mill Rd in Scotch Plains

Meet at Entrance to Tennis court parking lot. Make sure to dress for the temps and weather.  Nice part of being in park is you don’t have to carry your water(can leave at spot you will pass each lap) and drop layers off at car(instead of tying to waist). We will be staying in the park for the run since this is the first group run we have had. 

I will be coming from teaching the 7am spin in Martinsville.  I should make it on time but if by chance, I am not there at exactly 9am, it could be due to traffic getting there.

Hope to see you at the run!!

Coach Thea
