Dr. Charschan volunteers as medical staff for USATF NJ Cross Country Championships

It was a beautiful morning in Peapack Gladstone’s Nitirar park on Sunday August 30th, 2015. This is the beginning of USATF’s cross country season. Over a hundred runners participate in this 5k race that began at 9am.

The first runners were crossing the finish line by 9:16 which is a pretty nice race. A number of the local running clubs had participants who finished early. Of course, not everyone ran that fast but the entire event was finished by just after 10am as the last participants ran the course.

I was the medical staff for the event, making sure no one on this mildly hot morning had any health problems or emergencies that required attention. Luckily, no one had any problems on this wonderful morning.
