his is what I sent out to those who pre-festered for the Run For Heroes Race being held at Arlington High School on Saturday, July 23rd:

Thank you for registering for the first annual Mid Hudson Valley Run For Heroes Race being held at Arlington High School Saturday, July 23rd. Registration will start at 6am. We tried to guess how many t-shirts to order, but we had a larger turn out than anticipated. Run For Heroes T-shirts are only being given to those who pre-registered. THEY ARE BEING GIVEN OUT FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE. What that means is whoever is pre-registered and gets there early to pick up their race bibs will have the best chance at getting a cotton Run For Heroes Race T-shirt. We do have extra Dutchess County T-shirts, so hopefully once the Run For Heroes Shirts run out, you will get a dry wick previous Dutchess County Classic T-shirt until they are gone as well.

All runners will get military style dog tags as finisher metals and Awards will be engraved dog tags with finisher’s place on them. The kids awards will be given out once the results are printed and verified. Please make sure you are listed properly in the results before the awards are announced. They will be posted for you to check. If you are missing from the results, or listed as the wrong sex, please notify the scorers immediately.

If you have a race bib for someone who is not running PLEASE THROW IT OUT IN A GARBAGE CAN SO THE COMPUTER DOES NOT PICK IT UP AS A RUNNER IN THE RACE and throw off all the results. Also, please do not approach the two actual scorers. If the is a problem, we will have people who will relay you information to the scorers.

Remember to get to Arlington High School as early as possible. THE KIDS RACE GOES OFF AT 7:30 AM, SO NO TRAFFIC WILL BE ALLOWED ON DR. FINK ROAD FROM 7:30 TO 8:00AM WHERE THE KIDS ARE RUNNING. You can still come in the main entrance by the circle, but will have to park off th the right or in the back right side fields. Police and Civil Air Patrol volunteers will direct you where to park.

There will be cars on Freedom Road where 5K and 8K races are being held, so you must run facing traffic so you can see the cars. NYS Troopers and Sheriff’s will be out on the course slowing cars down. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!

The awards will be presented in the gym starting at 9:30 am so we can also honor our military, police, fire, EMT’s and first responders. Please stay for the ceremoney and support the Heroes that keep us safe. Running awards will also be given out during that time as well.

REMEMBER – get to the high school early if you want to make it in time for your race. Follow police and traffic control flaggers instructions and have a safe race. Thank you to our sponsors HealthQuest, MVP Healthcare, Wendy’s, Orthopedic Associates, My Brother Bobby’s Salsa, Jimmy’s Care Care, Feldman Physical Therapy and the Bagel Shoppe.

In honor of my son Chris, I am posing a picture of him from when he was in basic training looking at a sign at the Infantry Museum. It depicts the heroism that all the people being honored at our race demonstrate to keep us all safe no matter which responder job they have chosen!

2016 Patriot Cross Country

July 9, 2016

Practice 6pm, Thursday 14th@ Lime Kiln Recreation. Located off of Lime Kiln Road. Make a left at the light.

250 meters on your left. Be on time so we can start and finish on time.

First practice went well. We were lacking some but the ones that were there put in a great effort . 25/30 min Fartlek (Sweedish term for Speed play) for some,  for others just a steady pace.


If you need your inhaler but you left it at home we will not be happy with that. We will not let you continue on if you have an episode. Your inhaler is part of your running gear. Just like you running shoes it is a must have if you need it!!!

Make hills a part of your weekly work outs. Find a steep hill, crest the hill find your pace, your tempo, your rhythm after the hill. The race does not stop at the top of the hill. Neither should you!!

If you feel like you are having a hard time do not quit on Coach Russo or myself . Just dig down a little deeper


We have been approved for a over night at Queensbury Invitational which is located in the Saratoga area. We are still waiting for transportation approval. This is a great meet with a fantastic 3.1 mile course. We use to go to this meet as a over night for years. But over the last 5 years or so we have had transportation restrictions on distance allowed to travel…If everything works out we will be taking Varsity and JV Boys and Girls.. 28 athletes…Bus departure..Friday 9/16…… Race Date…..Sat 9/17…..Bus Return to John Jay Sat 9/17.

We will schedule a parents meeting before our 1st meet .  We know when some meets that we want to go are but we are not ready yet to send out a complete schedule.

If you are taking ACT’s or SAT’s please let your coaching staff know. We would like to avoid conflicts.


Thank You
