Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Are very fast elite runners coming to the race?

A: We do not know, but we do know that there are other races nearby that may draw very fast elite runners away and therefore the prize money may be more accessible to very fast local runners. This is a good thing because it rewards the local runners. Please tell all your local fast runners and ask them to register.

Q: Who should I contact to volunteer or if you have events or ideas for the after race events?

A: Call Wayne at ‪(917) 297-2365
