Congratulations to 53-year-old endurance athlete Les Madey of Westbury, who successfully completed the 8th annual Long Island Greenbelt Trail 50 Kilometer Run on May 8. Congratulations as well to 62-year-old Ray Nieves, also of Westbury, for successfully completing the accompanying 25 Kilometer Run.
Madey completed the 50K Run in 6 hours, 11 minutes, 52 seconds, scoring as the18th finisher overall; Nieves completed the 25K in 4 hours, 20 seconds, earning himself the 77th spot in the 20K.
Overcast skies at the start were followed by some short but torrential showers and high winds before the sun finally made an appearance in the closing stages of the run.
The Greenbelt Trail covers the entire width of Long Island from the Atlantic Ocean north to Long Island Sound, and the Greenbelt Trail 25K covers an out-and-back course on the northern third of the Trail between Plainview and the Trail terminus at the Cold Spring Harbor boat dock. The 50 Kilometer runners do the course twice. The southern miles of the course are fairly flat, but there are a series of nasty hills in the last two miles before the runners reach Cold Spring Harbor.
Race Director Nick Palazzo of the host Greater Long Island Running Club did another outstanding job putting the pieces together, with some most welcome support from Super Runner’s Shop and its proprietor Gary Muhrcke.
