Hambletonian Marathon Fun Run - NYC Marathon Alternative
Saturday, November 03, 2012
FWIW - I think Bloomberg canceling the NYC Marathon was the wrong decision, but what's done is done.
BUT - if you are trained and ready and in the area, drive about 1+ hour north to Goshen NY and try out the Hambletonian Marathon course. This event is scheduled to start in 2013, so its completely unofficial, and there will be some, but not full race support - but its a marathon course. And there is no charge.
NYC was expecting $350 Million in economic impact from the race. If we can can get a few extra dollars into *our* local economy, this post was worth it.
