Congratulations to local athletes John Daly of Massapequa, Andrew Valenski of Massapequa Park, and Greg Karl of Massapequa Park, each of whom won awards in the Long Island Blood Services Rob’s Run, a 5 Kilometer Cross Country race held at Stillwell Woods Park in Syosset on November 29.
Daly scored with 2nd place honors in the 55-59 age group, Valenski scored 3rd in the 15-19 age group, and Karl was the 2nd place finisher in the 60-64 age group.
The weather couldn’t have been nicer, as sunny skies and pleasant temperatures welcomed the field of 642 finishers.
The Run was staged by the Greater Long Island Running Club, with GLIRC’s Jim Murray serving as the Run Director. The key sponsor of the Run was Long Island Blood Services, with LIBS Executive Director Harvey Schaffler counted among the finishers once again this year.
Hold the date for next year—-Sunday, November 28, 2010, and the 18th annual edition of Long Island Blood Services Rob’s Run.
