First New Ro Runners North Avenue Mile – New Rochelle, 6/9/2013

DSC01738New Ro Runners merged in 2012 with the Sound Shore Runners  together with the Multi-sport Club under the New Ro Runners name, and their mission is to basically bring together all levels, all ages, and to create a healthy and happy running environment.

Today was the first ever North Avenue Mile “How Fast Can you Run a Mile Race?” which started at Paine Avenue and went to City Hall.DSC01773


There were approximately 320 athletes who had entered the race, and there were 6 ‘waves’ of runners (different age groups) which included:  Under 8  (Family walkers), 8-11 year olds, 12-19, 60 Year Olds +, Women 20-59, and Men 20-59. There was a great atmosphere there this morning, and while I was only able to stay for the first ‘wave’ to start, I certainly got caught up in the excitement, bringing back my own running days. Mayor Bramson was on hand to offer a few encouraging words, Mr. Katz sang the National anthem, and it was very well organized – I have to say. I loved the motto on the back of the shirts “Changing the Shape of the Community one mile at a time”.

New Ro Runners – you are off to a great start!
