The Ocean Running Club recently held their annual Winter Banquet and Awards Ceremony at the Lamp Post Inn in Pine Beach. Awards were presented to club members for the 2002 calendar year in a variety of categories including runners, racewalkers, marathon runners, and triathlete. Many categories had separate awards for male and female. In addition, club spirit awards, special achievement awards, a "President's Award," and a "Keeper of the Wave Award" were handed out.
Club members had the opportunity to submit their nominations, and then a panel selected the award winners. The Ocean Running Club award winners for 2002 are as follows:
Following the buffet dinner and awards presentation, many door prizes were given away. After the last door prize was given away, club members and guests danced away on the dance floor late into the night.
The Ocean Running Club holds many races each year, including a winter series and a summer series. All races are open to both club members and non-members. The Ocean Running Club also presents several scholarships each spring to area high school seniors who participate in sports and will be attending college the following fall.
