october 2009 race schedule

except for the maine marathon that kicks off my october race schedule, this month is populated with mostly 5k and 10k races. one weekend includes a double race day: october 18 will be the great train race in the morning and my neighborhood classic, the scarsdale fall foliage 5k in the afternoon. the previous october double, a pair of halloween races, is no longer possible since the wilton race has been moved to november 1 :(

aside from the maine marathon (i've run in portland a few times, but this is my first trip there for the marathon), the only "new" race this month is the nike+ human race 10k in prospect park. that one seems to be the successor to the ill-fated nike+ human race 10k held on randall's island last summer (way too many runners on way too small a course). the saving grace, thankfully, was the incredible post-race concert by the all american rejects. this edition of the 10k may also have some post-race entertainment?!

here are the races:

10/4 - maine marathon
10/18 - the great train race, 6.8m
10/18 - scarsdale fall foliage run, 5k
10/24 - nike+ human race 10k
10/25 - police pumpkin chase, 5k
10/31 - nyrr international friendship run

while the columbus day weekend is still open, i may find a race to squeeze in there :D and, most importantly, if you're at any of them, say hello!

i updated the october 2009 schedule here.
