Wednesday Evening, July 27th, 2016, the Long Island Road Runners will host
the Eunice & Colin Harris 5K in honor of 2 extraordinary people who gave so
much of their time and talent to our club. On this special night we will
donate 50% of our proceeds to LI Hospice Care and the ALS Foundation in
Manhattan as we have done for years. In addition, we will collect your
donations and forward them accordingly.
Joyce Patterson, Bob Patterson & Fred Haslett
Wednesday Night will also be bittersweet because
it is the last race worked by both Joyce & Bob Patterson and Fred Haslett. Fred
resigned as the President of the LIRRC in December, but graciously agreed to
stay on as Race Director. Similarly, Bob Patterson continued to time our
races while training Bill Reitz in order to both save the club money and to
ensure that future races could continue uninterrupted. Joyce has selflessly
manned the registration table for years and worked in many capacities - all
for the runners benefit. We salute Joyce, Bob & Fred for their unmatched service to the club.
What is on the LIRRC Schedule now??

Men’s Team is led by Captains Dave Frisone (email@example.com), Bill Schroeder
(firstname.lastname@example.org), and our Women’s
Team Captain is Marie Brewer (email@example.com).
It’s not about being fast – it’s a group effort to score points for LIRRC as
we compete against other clubs, and it’s a ton of fun. If you are
interested, contact the captains at the e-mail addresses noted above.
During the week, look for the Ribbons Runs to start again soon.
Jim Thornton and Mike Ogazon started these "unofficial" training runs on
Wednesday Nights, and they are a ton of fun. Runners meet until darkness
prevents a safe run; join your running buddies for a quick workout and
perhaps a snack afterwards.
A LIRRC Picnic?...Maybe. A Christmas Party? Yes. It's all in
the works. CONTINUE TO VISIT THIS SITE, READ THE E-MAILS THE CLUB SENDS YOU,
