(April 24, 2003) The Recreation Committee of the Village of Larchmont is sponsoring its annual Larchmont Run on Sunday, May 4th beginning at 1:00 p.m. This fun-filled family event -- a Larchmont tradition for more than twenty years -- attracts more than 400 runners and walkers of all ages.

This year’s events are as follows:

This non-competitive event is very popular with children. Trophies are awarded to the First Second and Third place boy and girl, age 12 & under, and all other participant receive a ribbon. Because we run this event first, parents can either run with their children or watch them cross the Finish Line and later compete in the longer, competitive 5K event described below. This event begins at 1:00 p.m.

This event is a leisurely two-mile stroll through Larchmont Manor; it is not competitive, and is a perfect event for parent-pushing strollers. All participants receive ribbons. This event begins at 1:30 p.m.

5K RUN – 1:45 P.M.
This competitive 5K race (approximately 3.2 miles) begins at 1:45 p.m. The Westchester Road Runners will man the finish line and determine the winners in various categories. Trophies or medals are awarded to the top male and female finishers and the first, second and third place finishers in various age categories.

Both the 5K Run and the One-Mile Fun Run start and finish at the Locust Avenue entrance to Flint Park. The Two-Mile Walk starts at the Locust Avenue entrance and finishes at the Shore Drive entrance to the Park. Before the events begin, participants can warm-up their muscles at a Stretching Station sponsored by New York Sports Clubs. At the Finish Line area, we will also be giving out refreshments and enjoying the jazz sensation of Ninth Street Stompers to keep our feet moving even after the events are over!

This year’s sponsors include Acura of Westchester, Addison Street Spa, Collins Brothers Moving Corp., Foley True Value Hardware, Larchmont Vision Care, Lusardi’s, New York Sports Club, and Post Wine & Spirits.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register at the Village Clerk’s office in the Village Center during business hours. Registration fees are $10.00/adult and $6.00/under 18 yrs., and all participants will receive a fabulous Larchmont Run ’02 T-shirt. Late registration is available at the Flint Park Playhouse on the morning of May 5th from 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. This is also the time and place to pick up your T-shirt if you pre-registered by mail or in person at Village Center. The Late Registration Fee is $12.00/adult and $8.00/under 18 yrs. Finally, this event is only open to Larchmont and Mamaroneck residents, and will take place RAIN or SHINE.
