The 16th annual Bethpage State Park Trail Relay will now take place March 15, after snow forced the postponment of the run’s original event date.
Runners will take off at 10 a.m. with the same three runners by two-mile format that has been used in the past.
Bethpage Federal Credit Union along with Bob Cook and the gang at the Runner’s Edge will both sponsor the event, with Greater Long Island Running Club vice president Carl Grossbard once again serving as director of the event.
Grossbard said that weather permitting, the event promises to deliver an enjoyable day for all attendees.
“Weather conditions being what they were, we had no choice but to postpone the Relay to what we hope will be a beautiful day on March 15,” said event director Carl Grossbard. “And we hope that everyone who wants a bit of exercise that morning will join in the fun. Just show up that morning, pay the $10 entry fee, and we will certainly find a team for you.”
There will once again be a free commemorative shirt for everyone who enters, and awards for the first place men’s, women’s and co-ed Open, Masters and Senior Masters teams. The “GLIRC Field Kitchen” will be on hand to provide everyone with cookies, hot chocolate, soup and muffins. There will once again be a nice merchandise drawing for all runners and volunteers.
The entry fee is $5 for each GLIRC member who pre-registers and $10 for all non-members and for all GLIRC members who wait till race day to register.
The Running Club hopes to be able to make a significant donation to the Center for Developmental Disabilities out of the proceeds of the Relay and, of course, anyone who would like to make a donation to CDD is encouraged to do so.

When it comes to food, New York is known for three things; pizza, deli sandwiches and bagels. Some of the best bagels are right here on Long Island. Plainview to be exact.
“When I was in eighth grade, I took a job at the local bagel store next to the high school,” said Steve Cohen, owner of Town Bagel in Plainview. “I still have that same job today, 36 years later.”

It’s hard to imagine that it’s Thanksgiving already. Is it me, or did we just celebrate? Halloween wasn’t even upon us and the stores were stocked with Thanksgiving and Christmas items. We say to ourselves, “each year, it comes earlier and earlier.” While some prepare to cook and figure out where to seat relatives to avoid arguments, others plan to dine out. To many of us, Thanksgiving means shopping on Black Friday. But for the few and far between who look forward to catching the latest film from the array released exclusively for the holiday weekend, the time has come to relish relaxation. Sit back and enjoy the weekend at the movies, while the deliciousness of turkey and stuffing is probably still digesting in your tummy.
The following movies opened on Nov. 26:
The Penguins of Madagascar (PG–92 mins)
The Penguins of Madagascar finally have their own movie. If you’re familiar with the previous Madagascar films, featuring the zoo animals and their adventures, then you already know the funny and lovable spy penguins. Packed with animated fun for the whole family, Skipper, Kowalksi, Rico and Private begin a journey as undercover agents to help stop the notorious villain, Dr. Octavious. New and returning voices include Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Tom McGrath, Christopher Knight, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and many more.
