Runners Edge, GLIRC to Host Winter Fun Run February 28

Runners of all ages and levels of ability are invited to join in the fun at the annual Runner’s Edge Winter Fun Run on Sunday morning, Feb. 28.  The run, which is being co-hosted by the Runner’s Edge and the Greater Long Island Running Club (GLIRC) with Runner’s Edge CEO Bob Cook and GLIRC Fun Run Chair Sam Zinn sharing the event director’s chores, will start and finish in the Municipal Parking Lot in back of the Runner’s Edge, 242 Main Street in Farmingdale. The starting horn will go off at 9 a.m.

Runners will have their choice of participating in a 3-mile, 6-mile or 9-mile run, followed by plenty of post race refreshments – juice, bagels, lots of hot coffee – back at the Runner’s Edge.  In honor of the 20th running of this event, there will be a special Winter Sale at The Runner’s Edge, with unbelievable bargains for everyone who shows up that morning.

“We usually get over 200 runners for this event,” observed GLIRC’s Sam Zinn, “so whether you run three miles at a 12 minutes per mile pace or nine miles at a 6 minutes per mile pace, you can be sure of a warm welcome and plenty of folks for you to run with!  We look forward to seeing lots of our Westbury and Hicksville running buddies on hand to join in the fun!”

Participation is absolutely free, and there are no entry forms to fill out. Just show up a few minutes before 9 a.m. on Feb. 28, ready to run!  For more information, call the GLIRC office at 349-7646.
