This is an update prior to Grete’s Great Gallop – 1.7 Miles on Sunday. All our runners who participated in the time trials understand their pace and potential for Sunday. We should all HAVE FUN!!!
T-Shirts: Our Five Points Runners T-Shirts are ready and will be available on Sunday. Shirts are blue with our gold/yellow logo and are a tech material (not cotton). They are $15 for children and $20 for adults.
Meeting Location: Five Points Runners and the NEST school team will meet at East 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue between 8:00 am and 8:15 am. From there we will proceed into the park where we will:

* introduce race buddies
* review race, hydration, safety procedures and reunite location
