New York Flyers Races of the Week
Now that the huuuuugely successful Three Bridges LTR is behind us, there are two great races coming up next week: a 5K/10K on Labor Day and an evening 5K on Thursday the 8th. Both are
small, well managed and lots of fun. One has a cross-the-river tram to get there and
the other has beer at the finish line. What's not to like?
