Scarsdale was on the run on Sunday April 2 when 177 adults and 86 children turned out to participate in a day of races and fun runs. This was the 47th annual 15K/4-mile run, sponsored by the Scarsdale Parks and Recreation Department.
Adults ran either 15K (9.3 miles) or 4 miles in a course that wove through Fox Meadow and Greenacres. Prizes were awarded by age category and the results show that in both the men and women's divisions there was a runner over 80 years old!
The overall winners of the 15K race were Robert Cruz from Scarsdale who ran the 15K in 56.11 minutes and Rachel Levine Rilander who completed the 15K course in 1:08. In the 4-mile race, Julian Scheinbaum was the first male winner, at 23.38 minutes and Jilly Mehlman was first in among the women at 27:33.
86 children between Pre-K & 4th Grade participated in the Fun Run with the youngest kids doing one lap around the high school track while the older kids ran four laps, which is a full mile.
Fortunately, the sun came out for the race, making it pleasant for the runners and all their supporters.
