The Race For The Hardcore Is Back! Do you think you have what it takes to run 3 laps of Prospect Park in the middle of February? No? Well what about recruiting 2 of your running buddies and forming a 3 person team, sharing the load and running one loop each?

 On Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 10:00 AM – regardless of rain, snow, wind, hail, sleet, fog, frost… or even sun – join us for the 19th Annual Cherry Tree 10 Miler and 3 Person relay.

We’ve got baggage check and great post-race refreshments (bagels, spreads, fruit and hot chocolate) at a new location this year, PS 154 located at 1625 11thAvenue in Windsor Terrace (between Sherman Street and Windsor Place). Plus we’re working on a pretty cool give-away for all entrants.

In the interests of safety, use of headphones is strongly discouraged, pets and strollers are not allowed.

Course: 3 loops of Prospect Park, Start on West Drive near Center Drive, Finish on Center Drive.
