December kicks off this weekend with the Taconic Relays this weekend (and a great post-race breakfast + beer)! It's an annual highlight. The following weekend is the NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k (and my first opportunity to check out the new pick-up location). It's the last team points race of the year. After the 15k, the Taconic's regroup in the Bronx for another post-race breakfast/brunch - a theme for early December :D
The next day is a trip to Queens for the B.U.S. Fat Ass Trail Mix-Up. The distance is 50k, with a 30k option. In the past I've opted for the 30k - and, given the 15k + brunch on Saturday, will probably stick with that distance again :D
Another December classic is the Holiday Run for Toys 5K in Fairfield the next weekend. Interestingly, there is a Holiday Classic 10k in Central Park the day before (12/19). That's a new one for me and I may check it out. Another new one (for me) is the post-Christmas Nyack Snowflake 5K (12/27) which I'm also tempted to run.
Here's how it looks so far:
12/6 - Taconic Couples Relay
12/12 - NYRR Ted Corbitt 15k
12/13 - BUS Fat Ass Trail Mix-Up 30k
12/20 - Holiday Run for Toys 5k
As always, if you're at any of these events - say hello!
