The NewRo Runners celebrated with their second annual North Avenue Mile well North Avenue! The race benefitted the Hope Kitchen (Hope Community Services) which has been in existence since 1984 feeding the needy . Today’s race was centered around “how fast can you run a mile? and started at Paine Cottage, past the High School and Iona College and ended up at our historic City Hall. There were 3 groups (waves) of runners: 9:00 am – Families, young children and walkers 9:40 am – Open women and 10 am – Open Men. It was only $25 to race with $15 for the younger racers and an incentive for groups, schools, etc., There were 3 awards for each of the overall men, women and age categories. There could also be an overall winner and top 3 from any wave. While I was too late for the first 2 waves, I was able to catch the last ‘wave’ of racers… here is a little video!
However, thanks to Darren Peister, here is the video of the event.. Darren did a great job!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
