The NYRR Club Points Series Races are back! Nine NY World Runners ran yesterday the Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K. This race is one of those that makes non-runners wonder: what makes people go out on a rainy Sunday morning, wait in line for a bag check and toilet, and be all smiling and happy? Maybe the awesome course in Washington Heights, maybe the awesome views of Fort Tryon Park, maybe the return to the Club point series, thousands of runners showed their smiley faces at the finish line in their colorful team attires.
Dario Leoncini, our top runner, did not disappoint us, getting first place for his country (Italy)
Giorgio Albrieux had an awesome race too, running the course in 0:20:38!
The rest of the team did great and we are so proud of them for their consistency to train and run.
The Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K was the first of the Club point series, are you ready for the next ones?
