A donation was made on Thursday, November 21, 2013 to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley of $15,000 from the proceeds of the Hambletonian Marathon & Good Time Trotters Relay. This, in addition to $9,000 that will be donated to the Orange County Citizens Foundation for improvements to the Heritage Trail and some other miscellaneous “thank you” donations, brings total proceeds from the inaugural year to $27,000!!

Training run this weekend will be SUNDAY 9/29/13 at 7 am.
We will be meeting AT THE START LINE on Main Street in front of Limoncello’s (159 Main St., Goshen, NY) to do the first 20 miles (or more or less) of the course – that is the first loop plus the second loop to just before the trail at the Chester Depot.
We will have drivers in Chester to bring you back to Goshen to your car when you are done (or if you come with someone and bring 2 cars you could leave a car there, or have someone pick you up in Chester when you are done). The address for the Chester Depot is 19 Winkler Place, Chester, NY.
I will be on the course in my car after the first loop so you can pretty much stop wherever you want – recommended distance for this weekend is at least 20 miles, with the possibility of going to Chester for 21.3 if you would like to.
Water & sports drink will be at miles 9 and 11.5, then I will support from my car for the second half.
All paces are welcome – hope to see you there!
This is the last long run before the marathon, then TAPER!!
