  1. Hello!

    We are bringing a ridiculously fun obstacle challenge 5K, called ROC Race, to New York on Oct. 12 and 13, and I wanted to see if we could partner in some way to help get the word out about our event. Sounds like we might be a good fit for each other and I’d love for your running club to be able to participate in this memorable experience!

    The Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge draws inspiration from hit obstacle TV shows such as Wipeout to bring you a 5K run/walk course that is unlike any other and designed to bring out the kid in you! The obstacles include favorites like the infamous Wrecking Ball, the World’s Largest Inflatable Moon Bounce and the World’s Largest Inflatable Slide.

    I would love to jump on a call sooner than later if you have some time, or just let me know your thoughts over email.

    Appreciate your time, and I hope to work with you on promoting this excellent event!

    Thanks,
    Jenna

  2. Good Afternoon Paragon Sports Running Club,

    My name is Allie – I am an avid runner and the Consumer Collecting Associate for Red Bull in New York City. I want to invite you and your members to be a part of a race unlike any other.

    Runners from around the Metro New York area will join more than 30 countries on May 4, 2014 in the largest simultaneous running event ever staged. Runners around the globe will participate together in support of bringing awareness to spinal cord injury and to fund research for finding a cure. Registration is currently open and interested runners should sign up now!

    I have included additional race information below. I look forward to speaking with you soon about how we can work together in the future.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    Unlike any other race ever, this global event has no fixed distance or finish line and every runner around the world, from part-time joggers to top professional runners, will start at the exact same time.

    Thousands of runners will set off on May 4, 2014 at 10 AM UTC (6 AM ET/3 AM PT) along routes in varying daylight and weather conditions. While it will be early morning in the four USA locations – Santa Clarita, Calif.; Sunrise, FL.; Denver, Col.; and Atlantic City, NJ – competitors in Germany will set off at midday while those in Taiwan will start at 6 PM local time.

    Those wanting to take part on May 4, 2014 have until midnight (UTC) on Sunday, April 20, 2014 to register for one of the runs via http://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com. However, participation per race is limited so interested entrants will want to register soon. Also, runners can take advantage of early window pricing until December 1.

    By running you will not only be part of a truly revolutionary global sporting event, but you will join the race to find a cure for spinal cord injury.

    Thank you,

    Allie

  3. Anyone have a suggestion for a 9-10 miles running course for 1/2 marathon training? I’m tired of Central Park loops . Any sugestions for the west side of Manhattan ? – Thanks SJ

    • Hey! You can start from the Dirt Track on 73rd Street, run North to the Lighthouse under the George Washington Bridge and back. That’s about 10 miles and will get you fully ready for any half marathon. Be sure to gear up as it will be quite chilly! Hope this helps. Best, Olivia

    • Hi Stephen, Our Tuesday Night Runs generally run from 4-7 miles, depending on the workout. Faster groups get in more mileage but all in all, the workouts are geared to make you a stronger and faster runner. Hope to see you on Tuesday!
