Welcome to Fall
The weather is great for running this time of year!
Our Fall Sunday morning races go from October 13th through to our popular
Santa 5K on December 22nd. Don't forget to mark your 2014 calendar to
make sure you're at our popular Annual New Year's Day FREE 5 Mile Hangover
Run at 9:30 January 1st.
We'd like to thank everyone who participated in our
annual Eunice Harris 5K in August, or donated to ALS. The proceeds
from the race and donations to the Columbia Presbyterian ALS Gift Fund
This December 22nd, we will again be having our Runner's
Edge raffle for Eunice Harris. Raffle tickets go on sale starting
November 17th at the Runners Edge in Farmingdale and at our races in
Eisenhower. Bob Cook and the Runners Edge gang do a great job in
putting the raffle prizes together, and it's another way of giving to the
Columbia Presbyterian ALS Gift Fund in memory of our beloved Eunice.
Congratulations are in order to our LIRRC Ocean to Sound
Team consisting of Bill Schroeder, Bob Monaco, Ira Kaplan, Mike Hunter,
Kevin Wizbicki, Hector Jaramillo, and Dean Hutchinson, with a finish time of
6:05:14 for the 50 mile relay. They placed 22nd overall out of 167
By the way, our USATF-LI Gran Prix race teams are doing
great! Currently our women's team and men's masters team are each in
3rd place. A big thanks to women's co-captains Adriana Staiano and
Kathy Agricola, and men's team captain Juan Oliveras for doing such a great
job. We are always looking for new members, so if you are interested,
please see our team captains at one of our races.
Due to changes in the design of the Eisenhower Park White
House we have used for our annual Holiday Party in recent years, we have to
move to another location. We found that place locally where we used to
have the party 23 years ago. More details will follow, but the date
will be Saturday night January 18, 2014. We'll keep the informal
atmosphere, tickets will be limited, so when it's announced, act fast.
