Runners of all ages and levels of ability are cordially invited to join the fun on Sunday morning, Feb. 24 at Bethpage State Park for the Greater Long Island Running Club's 11th annual North Fork Bank Trail Relay.
We are pleased to announce that North Fork Bank will once again be the most generous title sponsor for the event, and that The Runner's Edge running specialty store in Farmingdale will be the presenting sponsor.
This year's Relay will start at 10 a.m. with the same three-runner X two-mile format that has been used in the past.
There will once again be a free snazzy commemorative shirt for everyone who enters, and $75 cash awards will be presented to the first-place Men's, Womens's and Co-Ed Open, Masters and Senior Master's teams. The GLIRC Field Kitchen will once again be on hand to provide everyone with cookies, hot chocolate, soup and muffins. There will once again be an extraordinary merchandise raffle. Charlie Hamilton and Carl Grossbard will put the whole show together.
Thanks to the generosity of North Fork Bank and The Runner's Edge, GLIRC is able to offer this fun morning free of charge to pre-registered members of the Greater Long Island Running Club. The cost for non-members and all day of race registrants is only a nominal $5 per runner.
Also thanks to the generosity of the sponsors, GLIRC once again expects to be able to make a significant donation to the Center for Developmental Disabilities, based in Woodbury and Hicksville.
Don't have a team? Call the GLIRC office at 349-7646, or just show up on Feb. 24.
