PELHAM, NY -- Pelham Half Marathon announced today that Kinetic Sports Club will be the title sponsor of the 2016 Pelham Half Marathon & 10K. Kinetic Sports Club becomes the first title sponsor of the 5-year-old race, which benefits the Pelham Civic Association’s community programs. The race will take place on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 8 AM from the Daronco Town House and Gazebo.
“With the support of Kinetic Sports Club, we can take it to the next level for the 5th annual race in 2016,” said Race Director Jason Jeffries. “For the first time we will offer prizes for top finishers, even better course markings, more pre-race facilities, throw a post-race party, and move the race to the Gazebo at the center of town. And this brings people into the center of Pelham at the start of holiday season.”
Phil Donnelly of Kinetic Sports Club added, “This is a great community event and we’re excited to support such a great cause.”
Also new in 2016, the Half Marathon course will be officially certified with USATF which is important for many runners. They can officially set a world record, course record, or a personal record (“PR”), and running certain times on an official course enables them to qualify for elite races.
Top finishers will receive cash prizes, Half Marathon finishers will receive medals, and all runners will receive race T-shirts.
Registration for the 2016 race is open and more than 150 people have already registered, including runners from across the NYC Metro Area, the UK, and Australia.
There will be a series of preview runs to help gain familiarity with the Pelham Half course. Runners can find the schedule of preview runs on Burbio.com and the Pelham Half Marathon’s Facebook page.
Members and non-members of Kinetic Sports Club are invited to join the new Kinetic running club which meets Wednesdays at 6pm starting September 21st. Target distance for runs is between 4 and 5 miles. E-mail [email protected] or register using the Kinetic Sports Club app.
