Put in a few volunteer hours at the North Face store in the Westchester Mall today. The NF Endurance Run 50 Miler at Bear Mountain has been on my "to do" list for years! Alas, I'm not running it this year - but enjoyed meeting some of the runners lining up for it tomorrow morning (at 5 AM). The 50K and marathon are also run tomorrow. The Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K races are run on Sunday.
Most of the events had sold out. NF had close to 500 runners signed up for the 50 Miler - and about 650 runners in the 50K! That's well over a 1000 ultra runners taking over Bear Mountain. Those numbers are on the scale of the turnout for JFK 50 Miler!
Good luck to all the runners - at any distance - lining up at Bear Mountain this weekend :D
