MILLBURN, NJ – The night race in downtown Millburn drew nearly 1,000 runners participating in the 37th Annual Investors Bank President’s Cup Race on Monday, June 20..  The popular 5K running competition attracts top caliber and amateur runners from all over New Jersey and other states along the eastern seaboard.

Sponsored annually by the Millburn/Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, it’s one of Millburn Township’s largest events of the year and also marked the first day of summer.  Men, women and children of all ages came out on the warm and windless evening to participate in this Millburn tradition.

Taking first place in the Women’s division is Laura Cummings of Ho Ho Kus, NJ with a winning time of 17:35

First place in the Men’s division is Eric (no last name) from Newark, NJ with a finishing time of 14:57.

The two bested a field of 972 adult runners in their respective divisions.

Not all the runners were adults.  Though there was a kids division prior to the main race, many kids joined their parents in the “big race.”

Short Hills resident and Glenwood student Anthony Cassano, Jr. ran with his dad and posted an impressive 32:08.  Not too bad for a first grader.  He was running at a 10:13 mile pace.  Young Anthony placed 691, beating 281 primarily adult runners.

Runners were treated to free beer and refreshments at the finish line, compliments of Sam Adams and Charlie Brown's.

On this joyous occasion was also a bit of sadness as long time race director and Executive Director of the Millburn/Chamber of Commerce Karol McNulty announced it would be her last.  She notified the board of directors of the chamber earlier this month that she would be resigning her position.  She and her family will be relocating to North Carolina in the coming weeks.

Roxanne Giacalone, the current Assistant Executive Director, will take the helm of the M/SH Chamber.
