Brewster walk/run takes place Sept. 27
The Putnam County Department of Health (PCDOH) has announced that online registration for the Second Annual Run 4 Your Life event is now open. Building on last year’s success with over 300 participants, this year’s event will take place on Sunday, Sept. 27. The first 175 adult runners or walkers to register online receive a free T-shirt, a one-month membership to NY Sports Club and commemorative race glass.
Run 4 Your Life is actually three events of various distances, starting at 10 a.m. with a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) race, followed by a 1-mile walk and a kids’ half-mile Fun Run. All events will start and finish by the PCDOH at 1 Geneva Road in Brewster.
Allen Beals, commissioner of health for Putnam County, said: “The event was conceived not only to promote running and walking as ideal ways to enhance fitness, but also to showcase how much more fun they can be when shared with family and friends. So it is a full morning of fun, rain or shine, complete with free post-race refreshments for all.”
Online registration can be accessed through the Health Department webpage at putnamcountyny.gov/health, where entry forms can be downloaded.
Organizations that would like to sponsor or volunteers who would like to help out on race day can call PCDOH at 845-808-1390.
