A pair of Plainview-Old Bethpage residents hit their stride at a Long Island run recently.
David Drebsky of Plainview and Lorie Sheinwald of Old Bethpage both successfully completed the USA Track & Field National 50 Kilometer Road Championship at Long Island’s Caumsett State Historic Park in Lloyd Neck on March 2.
Sheinwald finished in 5 hours, 59 seconds, earning he second place award among the women in the 45-49 age group. Drebsky completed the 50 Kilometers in 4 hours, 43 minutes, 47 seconds.
The runners traveled 10 times over a 5-kilometer course through the wooded pathways of scenic Caumsett State Historic Park. The course runs very fast, most of it relatively flat, with a few rolling hills. There is one big loop heading north from the start/finish, followed by a short out and back to the south to make up the remainder of the 5-kilometer course.
Race director Carl Grossbard, who is the vice president of the host Greater Long Island Running Club, coordinator of volunteers Sue Fitzpatrick and all the other amazing staff members and volunteers were also clearly winners. The logistics crew was another winner, as Fred von der Heydt, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Nick Palazzo, with major help from Nick Harding, cleared piles of snow and otherwise got the course ready after a very difficult winter.
