Weekend run opportunity 12/20/14

Hello Runners!

Thank you all for leaving the parking open in front of Cafe 407 last week, please remember this is a weekly request! There is parking on 370 and down by the library. They have kindly accepted our group and allowed a warm place for us to gather we need to respect this request or we will be hanging out in the cold.

This week’s group run on Saturday, December 20th, we remain at “home base” at Cafe 407. The address is 407 Tulip St. Liverpool, NY. We will head out into OLP which allows for anywhere from 2-20 miles and if you are looking for any hills, you can run the loop that passes near the water tower on the village roads. We welcome all runners/walkers to join us. We have regulars that run anywhere from a 7 min to 13 min per mile pace so you can almost always find someone to run with. Please show up for a prompt departure of 8am and to hear any pre-run announcements.

It’s a Wonderful Run 5K in Seneca Falls, NY on Saturday 12/13/14 @ 4:40 pm

This has gotta be the coolest race ever! Who doesn’t love this movie! A unique start to this USATF Certified 5K Course places the field atop the famous Bridge Street Bridge which many believe was the inspiration for the bridge scenes in the holiday movie classic ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. After you strap your bells on(remember “every time a bell rings an Angel gets its wings”) the run/walk will take you past the decorated Christmas Tree display, the lighted storefronts and shops of downtown Seneca Falls, and past historic village homes decked out and lit-up for the holiday season. The course concludes in the shadow of the Bridge Street Bridge in People’s Park along the Seneca Falls Canal Harbor.  Proceeds go to the Seneca County House of Concern. Make a weekend of it…..The IAWL 5K Run/Walk is held in conjunction with the “It’s A Wonderful Life” Festival held every year in Seneca Falls, NY about 45 minutes from Syracuse. You can even stay at The Hotel “Clarence“! For more information and the full event schedule including the history of the movie and it’s link to Seneca Falls visit TheRealBedfordFalls.com.
