Tuesday, 31 August 2010
'Marc Pelerin and Katie Van Horn traveled to Ocean City for the day from the Cherry Hill area to compete in the inaugural Ruth Newman Shapiro 5K and walk event on Saturday.
Pelerin was the overall winner in 15:47 and Van Horn finished first for the women.
Pelerin, a Villanova graduate, and Van Horn, a Tennessee graduate, competed in track and cross country in college and are training for the upcoming Philadelphia Half Marathon.
After the competition, they spent the day on the North Street beach enjoying the big waves and sunshine.
“I love coming to Ocean City, there is nothing like running at the shore, and to be able to walk to the beach afterwards, it just doesn’t get any better as far as competing,” said Van Horn.
“We both needed a good race before Philadelphia next month, so it was a great opportunity,” said Pelerin. “I’ve run the course before, and to be able to come and visit friends too makes it fun. We really like coming to Ocean City.”
