Meridian Sponsors Team in the 2018 Annual Teterboro 5K Race.

Meridian's team for the 2018 TEB 5K.
A team of 10 runners represented Meridian in the 2018 Teterboro 5K run.

On Saturday, July 14, Meridian sponsored a team of ten runners for the PSE&G Teterboro 5K, an annual race in its 21st year, organized by the United Way of Bergen County. This year, the race has attracted over 500 runners from around the Tri-State Area and over 1,000 spectators, vendors, and volunteers to the airport. Funds raised by the event this year will go to help build safe and affordable homes for homeless veterans in New Jersey.
The TEB 5K is a certified and sanctioned USA Track & Field Association race that features a flat, straight running surface along a segment of Teterboro’s 1-19 runway, giving runners the best chance to improve their fastest times on its foot-friendly tarmac. This, along with the opportunity to race while overlooking the New York City skyline, makes this one of New Jersey’s best 5K events.
Below are the results from Team Meridian:

Karl Granchalek 23:39.10 94th Overall
Arjol Duka 24:46.17 138th Overall
Pat Garzon 28:20.05 228th Overall
George Remache 31:00.05 323rd Overall

Edvina Floed 35:34.25 396th Overall
Jorge Cornejo 38:38.51 436th Overall
Kvaughn Wedderburn 40:54.54 460th Overall

As a whole, the Meridian team finished fourth with a time of 1:16:45.2, just missing the podium by 90 seconds. We feel confident that Meridian will be a contender for the gold in 2019!
