Leonora Petrina made it look easy again this year. The internationally ranked Bayport superstar crossed the finish line on the track at Farmingdale High School in 16:39, scoring a 52-second victory over Laura Cummings of Bay Shore in the 28th annual Runner’s Edge Long Island Women’s 5 Kilometer Run. Leo also won the Paula Wunderlich Memorial Award as the first member of the Greater Long Island Running Club to finish.
Emily Brust of Mastic scored as the top Wheelchair finisher. A total of 394 women of all ages and levels of ability successfully completed the event on what was a hot morning, and a couple of dozen young women age 12 and under completed the 1/4 mile Fun Run that preceded the 5K.
By July and August, thousands of young men across America turn their thoughts to fall, maybe not to school but to those Friday nights when entire towns and villages are caught up with high school football fever. Nassau County is no different, even though most games are played, as once was common, on Saturday morning. Even in the most humid months of summer, football clinics take place across the nation, including a major one in Massapequa.
Massapequa women are being invited to sign up for the Runner’s Edge Long Island Women’s 5 kilometer Run, to be held on Saturday morning, July 16.
This will be the 28th anniversary edition of the run, which is Long Island’s only 5 kilometer race that is for women only. It will be starting and finishing at Farmingdale High School at 9 a.m. on the morning of July 16.
On Friday, July 8, the Friends of Massapequa Wrestling, Inc. will be hosting its 3rd annual Friday Night Lights Take Down Tournament at John J. Burns Park.

Runners from the Massapequas and all over Long Island are invited to join in the fun at the Sands Point Preserve Sprint for the Feinstein Institute on Saturday morning, August 13. This 5-Kilometer running race and recreational walk offers a combination of paved paths and runner friendly trails (and a surprise or two ) through the woodlands, and Long Island Sound vistas of the Sands Point Preserve, at the north end of the Port Washington peninsula.
