the bronx half marathon was officially cancelled today - so announced the nyrr site:
"Due to the cancellation of all NYC events on Sunday, August 28, the Bronx Half-Marathon and the Henry Isola Cross Country Classic have been cancelled."
it was a direct consequence of the mayor's announcement last night that all city permits were cancelled for events scheduled on sunday. it was a preemptive response to the approach of hurricane irene.
in any event, it will be my eighth nyrr qualifying race point. now, after the nyc marathon, i will have completed my 9+1 for 2012 entry :d
