Nyack, NY – October 26, 2011 – The Nyack Hospital
2011 marks the event’s 21st year, and Nyack Hospital has made several exciting changes to the popular race. Formerly a tough 10K running race (6.2 miles), it’s now a 5K (3.1 mile) run and a 5K walk for those interested in slowing down and taking in the scenery. Both runners and walkers will enjoy a certified scenic course that will begin at Nyack Hospital at 9:00am sharp. Runners and walkers alike will head north on Midland Avenue into Upper Nyack, and return by the same route to the Hospital. For the first time ever, the event will utilize electronic timing, and same day computerized race results will be available on the internet. Water stations and spotters will be stationed throughout the course. Pre- and post-race refreshments have been donated by David’s Bagels, Sysco, and Abbey & Ice Spring Water. It’s anticipated that this year’s event will appeal to seasoned runners & walkers and newbies alike. All participants are encouraged to seek “sponsors” for their athletic efforts and those collecting $500 or more by November 4, 2011, will have their names printed on the race T-shirt.
