On Sunday, February 21, 2010, The Prospect Park Track Club will host our 15th annual CherryTree 10 Mile and 3-Person Relay. We are very excited about our race this year and we want to spread the news among as many members of the local racing community as possible.
We call our event "A Race for the Hard Core". Our course consists of three challenging loops of Prospect Park. Runners have the option of completing the distance as an individual 10-mile runner, or as a member of a 3-person relay team, where each runner completes one lap.
The most exciting thing about this year's race is the fact that we will be using the Chronotrack Timing System with a timing mat at both the start and finish. Once again in the 10-Mile, we are offering cash awards to the top 3 overall male and female finishers. Additionally we use five-year age categories for all of our age group awards. In the Relay, awards will now be given to the top 3 relay teams in each category.
To make our event special, we offer many other amenities. This year our featured giveaway will be a high tech Sugio hat. After the race everyone can relax with hot refreshments at Bishop Ford High School and runners can treat themselves to a massage courtesy of the Swedish Institute massage therapist interns. I hope you can share this information with as many of your clubs' runners as possible.
This is also a great tune up for the NYC Half....
