Local Runners Help RunSmart Program Get a Head Start

Notwithstanding frigid conditions, nearly 200 runners were on hand in Bethpage on Saturday morning, January 22 to get started on the RunSmart Training Program for the Long Island Marathon Festival of Races. Lots of people signed up that morning, and everyone enjoyed either a one loop or two loop running tour of the Bethpage community – from the library up Broadway and then around and back via Stewart Avenue to Broadway, Powell Avenue and the library.

Head Coach Debbie Blair and her team were thrilled to have Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, Deputy County Executive Rob Walker, and Nassau County Parks Commissioner Carnell Foskey on hand to help get things started.

“We are quite pleased at the support our efforts are receiving from County Executive Mangano and the Parks Department,” observed Coach Blair.  “RunSmart is a wonderful avenue for allowing more and more runners to get ready for the Festival of Races on May 1.”

It’s not to late to get started! There are still three months between now and the Long Island Marathon Festival of Races, and that’s plenty of time to get ready for your first 10K run, half marathon or, if you have a good enough base, full marathon by May 1.
