Run to Support COVID Research

alexfreidmanSHS Junior Alex Friedman has been running track and cross country since seventh grade and was looking forward to competing in the annual Scarsdale Road Race with his friends that was cancelled due to the pandemic. He hasn’t stopped running around Scarsdale and noticed an increase in the number of runners due to the closure of gyms.

What to do? To make up for the cancelled event he decided to host a virtual race on May 31 called Run Together Stay Apart.This race will give participants a chance to run the designated distance wherever and whenever they want, as long as it is within the given timeframe. It’s essentially a normal race, but participants will run alone.

All Run Together Stay Apart participants will receive a virtual bib before the race and a medal afterwards, and all net proceeds will be donated to support research at the Hospital for Special Surgery to prevent COVID-19 transmission in healthcare workers.

In order to register, Venmo $25 to Run Together Stay Apart, and email runtogetherstayapart@gmail.com the following: name, address, phone number, email, and the distance you would like to run (either 1 or 5 miles) After the race, email the same address your time for your result to be posted. Alex urges you to share this event with your friends and family and to email runtogetherstayapart@gmail.com if you have any questions.virtualrace
