90 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 27 - September 2, 1999 212 run, walk in honor of the late JJ. Stein The second annual Run for J.J. Stein Memorial 5K was held last Sunday, Aug. 22, in memory of the former Rehoboth Beach life- guard who died in August of 1997. The event, hosted by the Seashore Striders, was added to the racing series attracting a large field of 221 runners and walkers in it's opening year. This year a field of 212 participants, includ- ing friends, lifeguards and family, showed up to offer their support in Rehoboth Beach. Several of the Rehoboth Beach lifeguards took part in the event, honoring the former soft-sand sprinter who was a member of the 1990 4 x 100 soft sand USLA na- tional championship team, as well as being a member of the runner- up world championship team the same year. Stein also won numer- ous titles in the annual Rehoboth Lifeguard Olympics. Proceeds of the event will again go toward the Joseph Jeffrey Stein III Foundation for Humanity. Racing first to the finish line was 24-year-old Kevin Danahy of the Rehoboth Beach Patrol in a season's best series time of 15:24 to easily top the field, which in- cluded 17 finishers under 18 min- utes. "I wanted to win this race espe- cially because it means a lot to the community and to the lifeguard family," said Danahy. Ironically it was another life- guard, Mary Beth Ellis, 22, cap- turing the female title in a time of 17:57 to easily top the next female by more than a three-minute mar- gin. "It was nice to see two life- guards win the race since J.J. was a member of the beach patrol for many years," said Jay Stein, who presented the overall winners with Tim Bamforth ave ecrn prforb" Jason McKay chugs toward the finish line to win the Re- hoboth Beach Patrol Catego- ry of the J.J. Stein Memorial 5K last Sunday morning. RUNNING an antique watch and antique bracelet for their performances, courtesy of Stuart Kingston. Fifty-two-year-old Reuben Beauchamp ran a nice race to win the male master category with a fourth place finish in 17:21, while 45-year-old Beverly Palmer was the third female and,also captured the female master category in 22:21 for 69th overall. Stein pre- sented both master winners with a unique silk rug as a nice gift to complete their magic carpet ride back home. Rehoboth Beach guards Jason McKay was the top finisher in the RBP Category, which honors the first Rehoboth Beach lifeguard to cross the line in 17:40, while vet- eran Chico Barranco was awarded as being the second guard in 21:47 when no female RBP guards took part in the race. "We really want this event to grow and attract 300 to 400 run- ners next year," said Jay Stein, who was the starter of the race. "As soon as the season is over we are going to start to work with the Seashore Striders on the event for 2000. We would like to have a possible relay among the life- guards, as well as a cookout/breakfast in the park for all the runners." Special thanks go out to the Strider Race Crew, the Rehoboth Beach Lifeguards, and sponsors Stuart Kingston, The Rehoboth Sport & Kite Company, Jud Ben- nett family and Coastal Printing for their support.
