Achilles Kids Advanced Training Program – It’s Not Too Late To Sign Up!

Sorry, the Top Ten is coming out tomorrow – I guess I got a little carried away in my reviews of our favorite restaurants around the city. In the meantime, I thought I would pass this information along (for all of you Saturday morning early birds):

Achilles Kids Advanced Training Program Update!
Dear Michaela,

Thanks to everyone  for joining us at the first Achilles Kids training run! We had 15 kids run 1.66 miles! We are so excited to work towards this five mile goal! We will be meeting again on Saturday March 17. We will also be meeting on Saturday, March 24. The next JCC workout is March 31.

 

For the Central Park training program, please RSVP to Megan at mlombardo@achillesinternational.org if you plan to attend. In addition, please note some new information:

 

* Please come right to Central Park at 90th Street and 5th Avenue at 10:00 am for a 10:15 am start.  (no more meeting at NYRR – we found that to be confusing)

 

* Come dressed to run in comfortable clothes and sneakers. Note that your child will probably warm up as they run, so it may be best to put them in layers they can easily remove.

 

* The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is on Saturday.   The Parade starts at 44th Street at 11:00 am and marches up Fifth Avenue to 86th Street, where the parade finishes at around 4:30 – 5:00 pm. Be aware that traffic may be an issue.

 

Thank you so much for joining us on this exciting adventure!!

 

All the best,

Megan, Janet, and Karen

NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile and More Achilles Events!

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
