NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile and More Achilles Events!

September 20, 2011 Leave a comment
ACHILLES INTERNATIONAL
UPCOMING 

NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile
Saturday, September 24th
Fifth Avenue & 82nd St.
(at steps in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Registration: 8:30 am 
RACE START: 9:10 am SHARP
AGES 8 – 14 years ONLY*!

PLEASE NOTE:

1. The NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile is a very exciting ONE MILE RACE down Fifth Avenue. It can be walked, but it IS one mile. Fifth Avenue will be lined with spectators cheering for the kids – so it’s a great event for our older kids to experience.

2. This world class race is a New York Road Runners event with NUMEROUS race heats for various age groups throughout the morning. That being the case, NYRR sticks to a very tight schedule and the races go off like clockwork.

PLEASE allow extra time so you can get there early or you WILL miss the race.
(and we DO NOT want THAT to happen!)

3. *We sincerely apologize for the age-restriction. Normally, we do NOT participate in events that are not open to ALL of our members. But this is a very exciting WORLD CLASS race – and is a tremendous opportunity for our older kids to experience. We hope to see you ALL at our next event on Saturday, October 1st (see below for all the FUN details).

FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL 212.354.0300
