New 5K trail race in Irvingon

The Van Cordtlandt Park Thursday night 5K series has ended, alas. If you find yourself in severe 5K trail race withdrawal later this summer, you’re in luck. There’s a new trail race north of the city in Irvington. It takes place on Saturday, August 29 at 9:30AM at Irvington High School to benefit their XC team. More info here.

  1. Somebody posted this to my NYC running calendar today too. Looks like a fun race. I like the way they made it donation-based. I bet they will raise more funds that way.

    • Robert — I sent the kid who contacted me to your site. I hope he gets some exposure that way. I probably won’t run it as it doesn’t fit in well with my training (plus I loathe 5Ks).

  2. The purpose of the fund-raising is to get money to pay for an assistant coach who is otherwise being let go for budgetary reasons.

    I hope to make it and ultimately to add some more trails to WestchesterTrails.

  3. Looks like a fun course. It’d be a good test for your Mojo – I wonder how far she/he ends up running.
