Boy Wins 10k Race Wearing Spray Foam Shirt
Alex Commette, a 10 year old from Brielle, New Jersey was the youngest to run in the annual Brielle Day race.
September 12, 2009 – BRIELLE, NJ – Almost 300 area runners participated in the Annual Brielle Day 10k Run this weekend. What sets this 10k apart from others is that more than 60% of it takes place in the challenging hills of Brielle in southern Monmouth County. Running up and down the hills make this a much more grueling 6.2 miles in comparison to your standard 10k.
Runners ranged in age from 10 to over 70. Alex Commette, a 10 year old from Brielle Elementary School was the youngest to run in the race. Commette not only won his Under 14 division, but placed 51st overall and finished the entire race in 48:02 minutes, beating most of the adults for the day.
Commette ran at a pace of 7:44 per mile, just over 2 minutes of the winner’s pace of 5:40 per mile. The winning time of 35 minutes 13 seconds was posted by David Slavinski, 38 year old from Point Pleasant.
