Special Event - 10K Beach Run in Rockaway Beach

On Saturday, April 20th, let's do something different. We'll head out to run a 10K race on the sand in Rockaway Beach. 

This long-standing series was seriously impacted by the destruction of the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk by Hurricane Sandy. We'll show our support by participating in a 10K race. 

Note that we are meeting to participate in another organization's race - this race is not organized by the Woodside-Sunnyside Runners. Therefore, please register yourself to secure a number. Register here, using the appropriate check-box:
Saturday, April 20, 2013 9:30am - Spring 10K - $25.00
http://signup.runnyc.com/evententry/3328102

We will post details about transportation from Woodside/Sunnyside in the next few days. If you would like to run this race and would love to drive your car with a few fellow members, please contact your extremely appreciative organizer directly to coordinate. If not, we'll take over the Q53 bus. 

If the weather is suitable, bring a towel along for some spring beach time!

    It looks like the weather forecast has changed for the better - mid-50s and sunny. We'll see you on the Q53, by the start or at Irish Circle Tavern after the race (I saw something that said they will have brunch for runners).

      Herry will run about 10 steps slowly - then bolt past everybody.

    If you would like to head to the race via mass transit, here is our plan:
    Meet in Woodside (corner of 61st St. and Roosevelt Ave, in front of Dunkin' Donuts) at 7:50am. We will catch the 8:00am Q53-Limited bus that should arrive in Rockwaway Beach just about 9am. This will allow plenty of time to pick up our numbers, drop our bags and prep for the 10K that starts at 9:30. If you'd like to meet the Q53 along the way (on Broadway or Woodhaven Blvd.), please leave a comment or message me directly to coordinate. Note that the Q53 runs about every 15 minutes on Saturday morning. We'll likely find beverages afterward (we have a birthday in the group!). Don't forget your sunblock and dress accordingly (temperatures should be in the upper-50s and there is a chance of rain to make it more fun)!

      ...the race is in Rockaway Beach, not Rockwaway Beach. Just so that's clear!

    I did register. Not sure if I needed to do anything else beforehand. I suppose I'll just show up there on Saturday.

      Sounds like you hit the important parts!

    Hey Jay when I was signing up I saw a team in scroll bar. Are you going to start one for this race?

    April 14, 2013

    • Jay

      I'm not planning to start a team. That list is for members of the registered teams that compete in races around the city. I can explain my rationale next time we cross paths.

    • Annie Sansaricq

      Ok sounds good I'm signing up and FYI it's my birthday so lets celebrate at the Irish circle afterwards!
