New York Road Runners mourns the passing of Bill Sherry, a longtime race timer, who died on Thursday after a battle with cancer. We express our condolences to the Sherry family.
Bill, along with his wife, Gail, owned and ran Super Race Systems, a race timing company located in Garrison, NY. Their company scores hundreds of events, from the Quad-City Times BIX 7 to the TD Five Boro Bike Tour to small-town 5Ks, each year.
Super Race Systems has assisted the NYRR timing team over the past 27 years, including timing at split points during this year’s TCS New York City Marathon. Over the years, Bill became friends with several NYRR staff members, all of whom will remember his great sense of humor.
A former high school teacher and champion golfer, Bill got into the sport during the running boom of the 1970s. He met Gail while timing the 1984 River Bank Run 25K in Grand Rapids, MI. She was a volunteer at the race and would later become his wife and race-timing partner.
