Races This Weekend

There are some *great* local races this weekend, and if you don't have any plans, you should check them out:

*The Major Eugene McCarthy 5K, held in Marine Park, takes place Saturday.

*The Dashing Whippets are hosting a track!! meet at the East River Park (FDR Drive, East 6th) on Saturday. Events include a 2-mile run and a distance medley relay. Festivities start at 9 a.m.

*The always popular, always hilly Riverdale Ramble 10K, held Sunday at 9 a.m. I'm a huge fan of good-sized local races (no offense NYRR), and is this one of the top ones.

*Closer to home is the Kenny Dolan 5K (yep, it's a loop in Prospect Park with several hundred of your closest friends). It starts on the (down)hill near Bartel Pritchard (15th/Prospect Park West). It's also part of the Brooklyn Triple Crown series, which continues June 26 with the Cosme 5K (and is missing the third leg at this point.)
