Rocky’s Races is excited to welcome Million Wolde, Gold Medal winner in the 5000m at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Million is a frequent runner at the “Rocky’s” and will be on hand for the award ceremony! More on Million here. http://www.iaaf.org/athletes/ethiopia/million-wolde-50129#personal-bests
So, we know some of you are new to the race….here’s a few pointers.
Race starts sharply at 9am. Ok, maybe we started at 9:04 last year or so but it’s pretty close! Be on time!
There is no official bag drop. We’re a homey style race so a lot of people leave their jackets/extra layers with their families/friends or by the side of the trail. Seems to work pretty well. If you prefer, you can leave it up with our t-shirt handler, John Zee, and he can stash it somewhere near his post. But, please NO VALUABLES–stash those in your locked car or carry them with you.
Speaking of car…please carpool as much as possible. Twofold reason for the race being capped: trails a bit narrow in spots, so we want to ensure a nice experience for all participants, and, parking is limited. There is no charge to enter the lot if you are in the race. Volunteers will give you a pass to display in your car. Another reason to get there early!
Parking for the race is at the main entrance to the Preserve which is on Rt. 117/125 Phelps Way. When you google this address it tells you it is in Pleasantville because, well, technically it is. However, it is nowhere near the town of Pleasantville. If you are in the town of Pleasantville you might get a good cup of coffee, but you won’t be near the race! The Preserve entrance is in between Rt 9 and the Taconic.
The race start and finish is a short walk from the Parking lot, you’ll see signs and can follow the crowd.
Refreshments, vendors, and awards will be up at the parking lot. We’ll try to have results posted as soon as they come in both down at the race start/finish and up at the parking lot.
And, just in case you are not familiar with the Preserve…expect some beautiful scenery but don’t expect a PR there’s a nice hill to get you warmed up before mile 1. Map of the race course on this website.
Your bib number is your raffle number. In the interest of expediency (reduce the time spent standing around in wet clothes on a cold day with your teeth chattering), we’ll pull raffle numbers while you’re all running and post the winners next to the results. Trust Us, we’ll be blindfolded!
Team competition: pretty simple. Lowest total time wins, and so forth 3 deep in the 4 team categories. Teams of two in all male, all female, coed and coed century (both people must have a total age of 100 or more).
Awards 3 deep in 5 year age categories, starting with 15 and under, then 16-19, 20-24, etc. Male/Female, of course.
NOW GO GET ‘EM! see you on Oct 24th!
