The past week brought us many exciting races, fast times, and great stories. Yesterday Washington Heights was alive with the sounds of Salsa, Blues, and Shamrock runners. Amid the thumping beats and pounding feet New York Athletics Club put the overall male AND female on the podium. In both cases the finishes were stunning!
Adult running clubs weren’t the only focus of the day. One of the most impassioned groups to take the course was NYRR Young Runners. This program is designed to help teach kids from grades 3-12 to set goals and make physical activity a part of daily life. As a testament to the programs growth over 700 kids ran under the Young Runners banner.
Earlier in the week NYRR hosted a Night at the Races at the Armory. A big congratulations goes out to BRC’s own Victor Palumbo for taking third in the mile with a blazing fast 4:24!
