Calling all Runners and Families!!!


Just wanted to let you know about a really great race right here in Croton with scenic views of the Hudson, Croton Landing, and Half Moon Bay.  It is the St. A’s 5K on Saturday May 2nd and it only costs $20.00 in advance ($25.00 the day of the race) and includes a great T Shirt as well as prizes for the first three finishers as well as the first runners in each age group.  All the money raised goes to support the Croton/Cortlandt Food Pantry.  For families, there is a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk for only $15.00 (in advance, $20.00 the day of the race).  There is even a party afterwards with treats and hydrating drinks for everyone (there will be water stations throughout the race as well).


Won’t you join us and have a great time running in a beautiful environment and at the same time supporting our neighbors that don’t have enough to eat?
