Starting this weekend the City of New Rochelle will have lifeguards staffed at both Hudson Park beaches seven days a week and on through until Labor Day weekend. From Memorial Day weekend until the Fourth of July weekend the City only staffs lifeguards at one beach on weekday, a longstanding policy based on usage patterns, City Hall officials say.
Confusion over lifeguard staffing became an issue this week after a New Rochelle resident was prohibited from swimming laps at the "old beach". When the issue was raised to Mayor Bramson, the resident tells Talk of the Sound, she says the Mayor replied to her concern by observing that he had been at the beach the previous weekend and he had not experienced any problems. She considered the Mayor's reply to be unresponsive to her concern but Talk of the Sound has confirmed that the Mayor did refer the matter to the Director of Parks and Recreation Department which then investigated the resident's concerns.Read more
The Paine to Pain 1/2 Marathon Trail Race -- starting at the Thomas Paine Cottage and ending at New Rochelle High School -- is registering participants at double the pace of last year.
The annual event uses a new trail system that takes runners up through Mamaroneck along the Leatherstocking Trail, winds its way through Saxon Woods and comes back down along the Hutchinson River Trail, Twin Lakes and Nature Study Woods. A detailed map of the race track can be found at the web site.
The race, in just its third year, has been registering runners at a pace that should easily eclipse the 191 runners that crossed the finish line in 2009. Participants came in from throughout the New York metropolitan area for the event.
This year's race will be run October 3rd, starting with a gunshot from a colonial musket at 9 am.
Reviews from last year's race can be found at the Paine to Pain blog.
A a full description of the event, as well as sponsorship opportunities, can also be found at the race's website along with registration information.
This is the longest trail race in Westchester County, and a unique event in the metropolitan area due to the nature of the course, as it winds its way through so many different communities in the Sound Shore area.Read more
