Charlie Stavros Memorial
 Misquamicut "On The Beach Run"
    Misquamicut, RI (August, 28th)

   Charlie Stavros was a top flight road racer
  for many years. One of his favorite training
  regimens was running on the beach. And he had
  to be happy watching from above as fellow
  running comrade Jim Cherenzia stormed to vic-
  tory for the second year in a row and third
  overall in the race that is named in his mem-
   It was no cruise on the Misquamicut shoreline
  for Cherenzia however, as he had to deal with
  a brisk running contingent that included Wes-
  terly High crosscountry and track standout Dan
  Siskiewicz. The high school senior took control
  at the outset rounding the cone halfway through
  the 3 mile beach run in a solid 8:31. It was at
  this point that all contestants encountered a
  fierce headwind for the return trip to the fin-
   Cherenzia, running in 10th place at the halfway
  point began picking competitors off using his
  extensive experience with beach running. "It is
  different in terms of competing" he would later
  state to the local media. With about a quarter
  mile to go Cherenzia made his final decisive
  move on Siskiewicz taking the ribbon in an
  exciting finish, 18:00 minutes flat to 18:02.
   Katey Kokomoor of Noank, CT, enjoying a fine
  season of area racing, was the top finisher for
  the ladies in a time of 22:50. Jan McLaughlin
  of Westerly, RI was second in 25:52.
   The beach race serves as the official close to
  The Tom McCoy Family Fun Run Series. It is spo-
  nsored by the Pleasant View Inn of Misquamicut
  and the Westerly Track & Athletic Club.
