Roosevelt Island Runners Group Being Formed - Meet Saturday Morning 9:30 AM For First Group Run

A new Roosevelt Island group is being formed - The Roosevelt Island Runners. Here's some info:
A new group – The Roosevelt Island Runners – has been created on the island after a few residents inquired about a group running event.  The group will start by running once a week starting in front of Riverwalk Bar and Grill at 9:30 am on Saturday mornings.  There is no set distance or pace, just a bunch of people, starting a run (or even walk) together.   If there is enough interest other runs may be organized.  The link below is the website for the group.  There are a few polls and room for new ideas and suggestions.  See you Saturday morning.
So if you want to avoid the loneliness of a long or short distance runner, come on out Saturday mornings and enjoy the company of your fellow Roosevelt Island runners as these runners did last October for the Icla da Silva 5k run.

UPDATE 6:30 PM - Are you interested in running a Roosevelt Island 10K race? If so, consider the NYC Runs April 1 Roosevelt Island 10 K:
NYCRUNS is thrilled to return to Roosevelt Island with a great new USATF certified (pending), electronically timed and scored 10K.  This is a race which we're really excited about and intend to build into either an RRCA or USATF championchip if we can.

We'll be pulling out all the stops with this one including providing a fantastic post-race breakfast (you may have figured out we like that sort of thing) and a cool giveaway. We're not telling you what it is though. You're just gonna have to trust us....
