The Hounds and Harriers Run Raises Funds for Charities

BY BARBARA RUSHMAN

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ--The 18th annual Hounds and Harriers Run was held in South Mountain Reservation on October 11. The showers throughout the morning didn’t dampen the spirits of the race participants or volunteers.

First across the line were repeat winner Eric Morse (Berlin, VT) and his partner Murdock, a West Highland Terrier in 16:49. Second place went to Scott Moran (New Providence) and his hound mix Eli (17:19). The woman’s division was won by Lauren Santonastaso (Springfield) and her beagle/Jack Russell mix Macy in 20:20. Runner-up was Robin Gialanella (Forked River) and pit/boxer mix Barkley whose time was 21:32. A 10 lb Chihuahua named Harry pulled his very fit owner Pete Shebey the whole run to an impressive finish taking the first small dog award (23:27). Turnout was down due to the rain, but most stayed for the awards and prize drawings. The race organizers provided 10 tents for cover.

A second shorter event called the “Paws from the Past” was held for dogs that are retired from running the longer course due to age or disability. All six Paws sign-ups made it out on race day although mastiff Rosie didn’t want to get out of the car. Participants in the Paws event included two-time three-mile winner Sheba Johnson. Also Lady Paul, the most senior dog in the Paws event (15 yrs 9 months) finished as high as second multiple times in the three-mile run.
