Upcoming Races

Next weekend (Dec. 5-6) has at least three local races to consider:

* The Bay Ridge Jingle Bell Run 2009 (or, the Valerie Piro Push to Walk 4 Mile Run) on Saturday, Dec. 5. The race is run in support of Valerie Piro, a Stuyvesant High School student who was hurt last year after the girls track team van flipped on the way to a track meet at Dartmouth College. The course is on the Shore Road Promenade.

* The Peter Rabbit 3-Mile Cross-Country Run in Prospect Park (also on Saturday)

* The Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis in Prospect Park on Sunday, Dec. 6. Among the amenities: jingle bells for your shoes. The run is 5K, the walk is 3K.

At this point, the NYRR race in Central Park, the Joe Kleinerman 10K, is sold out, so if you're looking to race and didn't sign up for that, there's plenty of options close to home.
