Hey running friends! I wanted to jump on here to tell you about a special group run this Thursday!
For this one week our club is heading on over to Flushing Meadow Park in Queens. Why? One of our original members who came to the first ever group runs and was a regular many of the early group runs has become one of the heads of the NYRR Open Run at Flushing Meadows. Melanie will be hosting her first NYRR Open Run on this day and she asked if her club could be there to support her on her first official NYRR Open Run. I think it would be nice to do this so we are headed to Queens!
The loop in the park is a 5k but she says runners do it multiple times to get their miles in. There are bathrooms on site and volunteers on hand to watch people’s bags. You can either drive there or take the 7 train. It may be a bit of a commute from the city but its a one time deal for a team member, so hoping folks can troop it out there this one time!
See you all there!
