On Day 4 of the South Jersey County Record Project, we roll into Cape May County!!!

OK, it’s time for Cape May County, and this was a tricky one, because Ocean City seems to hold just about every indoor county record there is. But there’s limited information available on Cape May so I did the best I could and I’m going to count on you guys to make any corrections or additions, and I’ll update this as we go.

Also, we’ve got a very cool project coming up very soon on New Jersey Milesplit with Robert Kellert, Jim Lambert and Pat Monferrat and maybe some other track junkies, so keep an eye on the MileSplit home page for details of that. It’s going to be awesome!

We all miss track desperately but I’m going to keep the content coming here until that happy day when there’s live results to write about! If you have any suggestions for lists or stats or anything else, send ’em over!

OK, here are the first three installments of the South Jersey County Record Project! Remember, we’ll finish indoor records and then move on to outdoor records.

    In your Cape May County records you list Walt Buganski (400) as being from Lower Cape May. Walt was an Ocean City runner. Thanks for all your work! Anxious to see what you guys are coming up with for mile split!

      dang! sorry ’bout that! Just fixed it. Ed Grant’s 2009 annual listed him as LCM.

      Yeah, those guys have some great ideas! We’re each going to write about the top 10 races we’ve ever seen! It’s hard to narrow it down to 10 but it’s going to be fun!

      Hope all is well with you, Bill … hope to see you at a meet before too long!
