Rivertown Runners is an organization committed to developing community running events for members and other runners with the purpose of raising money to benefit local charities and putting the “fun” back in the run.
Rivertown Runners meet for weekend group runs every Saturday and Sunday at the Sleepy Hollow High School parking lot. It is a meeting spot for many runners and cyclist in the area. We head out for a 6-7 mile run into the Rockefeller Preserve at 8 am sharp. So it is best to be there a bit before 8. Some run shorter and others longer depending on their training. There are different paces so there is always someone to run with. It is a great way to learn the trails of the preserve. It is an awesome place to run.
On Thursdays we have two group runs. The 6 AM Thursday Morning workouts vary but do include speed, hill, and tempo sessions. It meets at the high school as well. They use the track and the trails for their workouts. It is a friendly workout and non-competitive and continues to grow in participation. The goal is for each runner to improve at their own pace with the support of the group.
On Thursday evening RTR meets at the Bridge View Tavern at 6:30pm for a group run along the Hudson River to the Lyndhurst Mansion. We finish up back at the Bridge View Tavern where water is provided. Of course refreshments can be had from BVT hence the run is named “Thirsty Thursday”.
If you get a chance checkout our face book page and you will see that we do have post-race tailgates, run as a team at events, and there are other non-running social events throughout the year. RTR members are also a part of a non-profit organization that has donated over $100K back to the community through the two races we present throughout the year. That’s a good thing.
To join you can print out the application on the membership page and sent it to the PO address. Or you can join us for a run and bring it along. Of course if you want to run with us first that is okay, all are welcome to join us any time.
