The Hicksville Chamber of Commerce is joining forces with the Greater Long Island Running Club to provide a great summer running and partying experience for local runners on Saturday evening, August 17.
The big event will be held at Cantiague Park in Hicksville, kicking off with a free 1/4 mile “Fun Run” for youngsters age 12 and under at 4:30 p.m., followed by a 5 Mile Run through local neighborhood streets at 5 p.m., and in turn followed by a post-race Barbeque with hamburgers, hot dogs, beer, ice cream and all the trimmings, plus live music courtesy of Outer Leaf.
Special technical shirts will be presented to every 5 Mile Run entrant. Every youngster who finishes the Fun Run will be presented with a special finisher’s medal.
