MILLBURN, NJ - The cold, grey weather didn't keep the runners away at the twelfth annual Run for the Red 5k hosted by the Red Cross. Over 200 participants registered early, with many more runners signing up on race day outside the Millburn Public Library.

Even the youngest members of the community got in on the action, with a short fun run to kick off the festivities. At 10:00 am runners gathered at the starting line and headed off into the South Mountain Reservation on the hilly course. 

At 17:26:95 Short Hills resident Peter Murphy crossed the finish line with a 5:37 pace.

The Run for Red 5k Race has continued to grow over the years, witnessing new runners as well as returning competitors. Last years male winner Daniel Bier was back and placed third behind Murphy and Mburm James.

Millburn High School cross country runner Katelyn Zegas took the ladies crown with a time of 21:25:98. Juliet Lombardi and Libby Dominczyk finished in second and third respectively at 21:30:72 and 22:11:16.

The first four-legged participant across the finish line was Cadence at 21:50:87 with owner Scott Redler with owner 21:51:71. Cadence wore Chace Redler's bib when illness ruled out his run for the 9-year-old age group record. Chace already holds the 8-year-old record at the President's Cup 5k that took place in Millburn back in June.
