Captain Lawrence Run and Ride

Sunday, May 16, 2021

Join us for this 17 mile run and 34 mile ride (there and back :)) to the Captain Lawrence Brewery in Elmsford. This is a supported run and a team favorite. And there is beer at the end! What more can I say?

There will be staggered starts for Runner and Cyclists depending on pace and start locations.  The route will follow the Putnam Trail to the South County Trail up to Elmsford. The route from the trail to the brewery will be marked with chalk and streamers. Arrival time at the Brewery is 12 noon so please plan accordingly. We have a 12 noon to 2 pm spot at the brewery. Please visit the Captain Lawrence website for information about Covid protocols as well as beer and food menus.  Cars will be available for rides back to the Tortoise and Hare statue on Broadway. Stay tuned for more information and signing up.

Organizers: Rick Bloomer and Jean Marie Andrews

  1. Hello – I hope everyone is doing well, and hopefully getting back to in-person racing this year. Do you know if the Summer XC Series will eventually be opened up to non members?

    Thanks so much and best of luck

      Good morning, Kurt. We apologize for the late reply. We hope you are well. Currently, we are still closed to non-members until further notice. Should things change, we will update our status. If anyone would like to run the Summer Series races, they can become a member keeping in mind that they are able to be members of multiple clubs but can only race for ONE club for New York Road Runners [NYRR] races.

    Good afternoon, Renee. We apologize for the delayed response. Yes, there is still time to become a member AND run in the remaining races [there are three left]. Please direct your inquiry to our Membership Committee: Jean Marie Andrews and John Lanning and put Membership as the subject if you are still interested. Have a great weekend.

    PS the email is:
