This past month Mena Shaw Races in Tampa, Florida wanted to pull the running community together to help support the families affected by the horrific acts on 12/14/2012 in Newton, CT. This is a virtual half marathon to help raise money for those families.

100% of your race registration will go to United Way of Western Connecticut – Sandy Hook Victims. The United Way pledges to stand with the community and everyone affected directly and indirectly by this tragic event.

You will be responsible to print your own bib and run your miles on your own. Rockland Road Runners will be organizing a group run for this event so that we can come together to show our support and run our miles together. Runners can break off at any time if they are unable to complete the 13.1 in one shot, running the rest of the miles on their own at any point before 1/31/2013.

When Mena Shaw Races created this event they were hoping to get 100 participants. The event spread nationally and now has close to 2,000 registered runners (and growing every day).

Group Run Recap

We had a great morning: the weather was beautiful and the group was ready to run! The group was small, there were four of us total: Jonathan Farrell, Alister Renwick, Mike Seidenfrau and Michael Dinger. Michael Dinger opted to run on his own (and finished with a string avg. 8:02 pace!) while Mike S., Ali, and Jonathan ran as a group. The original plan was to run the old Hook Half course (north to Haverstraw at the bottom of the Hook) but we made a game day decision to do the familiar Hook course and go down to Nyack Beach. The beach path still has some significant damage and debris from Hurricane Sandy but we were able to make our way. We climbed over some fallen trees and spent most of the beach miles avoiding large rocks and sticks. Even though it slowed us down it was still a nice break from all the hills! We wore our bibs with pride and enjoyed a beautiful day out running together!

This weekend we did our long run in honor of the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary. Nothing can erase the tragic events of 12/14/2012 but we can always band together to remember those lost and do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
