BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ - Nastassja Kuznetsova, Race Director for the Legwork for Lungs 5k and Mile Walk said she had only one regret on Sunday, Nov. 5 - “We ran out of T-shirts.” 

Last year they ordered 80 race T-shirts and, being optimistic, she doubled the order this year, only to run out because so many people registered.

That’s actually good news, because Kuznetsova organized the 5K to raise money for Lung Cancer research being conducted at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). All proceeds from the race are donated to MSKCC, with sponsors paying for all the expenses associated with the race. See a complete list of sponsors here

The race is preceded by a one-mile run/walk and a few people, including Angie Corker, use it as a warm-up. She led Team “Angie’s Apples,’ which was made up of four pre-schoolers, on the walk.

 

 

The six adult members of Angie’s Apples Team posted a second place finish in the team category of the 5K.  

The fourth Legwork for Lungs 5K took place on a cool, but not cold, misty morning at Mountain Park. Sign in was at the top of the hill, by the soccer fields. The walk started from there, while the 5K began along the far path, near the baseball fields. 

A full list of winners can be found here, on compuscore.

The overall male winners were Craig Roushinko Of Succasunna, with a time of 19:58.57; Ken Ginsburg of Warren, with a time of 20:11.42 and Peter vaihansky with a time of 20:11.42.

The top overall female finishers were: Kimberly Bevevino  , Of Basking Ridge, with a time of 21:40.85; Erika Bergman, with a time of 21:50.40 and Angie Corker of Plainfield, with a time of 23:54.71.
