Graybeard Family Run Starts Tonight At Boardwalk
The 4th Annual Graybeards Family Run will kick off this Friday at 6:30 at Shorefront Parkway and Beach 100 Street.
The Family Run is one of the highlight events of the summer in Rockaway. Over 500 runners participated last year with hundreds more joining in the post-race festivities. A similar or greater turnout is expected this year. St. Camillus will be the host of this year's event that will begin with the Children's Races at 6:30.
The Special Olympians inspirational run follows at 6:45. The 1 Mile Race will take off at 7:00 with the 5K Run following at 7:15. Post race activities in the St. Camillus Schoolyard will feature food and refreshments, door prizes and raffles, live music by the Graybeard Riders, and the Awards ceremony.
This year's lead sponsor is the Benjamin Corporation, developer of Arverne-by-Sea. Other sponsors include Footlocker, Roxbury USA/4 POINT 0/New York City Message Bears, The New Irish Circle, Its All Good Tees, and The Wave. Day of race registration will be from 4-6 PM at St. Camillus.
Please come early to register so we can begin the events on time. Graybeards and Wounded Warrior apparel will also be on sale in the schoolyard. Come one, Come all!
