Are you ready to join Team Aisling at the Yonkers Marathon this race day, October 20?
The Aisling Irish Immigration Center has seen a record number of participants sign up this year to run as part of Team Aisling at the Yonkers Marathon race day. Taking place on October 20, 2019, eager supporters of the New York Irish institution are already in training for their 5K, half or full marathon.
At a successful launch on Friday, June 21, at J.P. Clarke's Saloon on McLean Avenue in Yonkers, NY, John Neary of the New York Athletic Club thanked all those who had rallied behind the historic Irish organization this year, while thanking their ten premier sponsors—All-Boro Floors, The Tara Circle, J.T. Magen & Co., Rory Dolan's, Willowfield Construction, USW - United Structural Works, Connolly's Restaurant NYC, Country Bank, The James Trading Company, and Donnelly Irish Meats—who participants will proudly showcase on their training shirts.
While record numbers for 2019 have already been achieved, there's still plenty of time to get involved in this massive Irish community event, with registration remaining open here until September 20.
Promoting friendship and fun, Team Aisling encourages all people, of all ages, to take part in this fantastic opportunity to connect with the New York Community through walking, jogging, running and socializing.
For those hoping to take the run a little more seriously, Team Aisling offer speed work training and boot camp classes for members. Please contact Team Aisling Coordinator Tracey Ely Dwyer, TeamAisling2019@gmail.com for more info.
All funds raised are in aid of the Aisling Irish Community Center’s programs and services. For additional information contact the Aisling Center at 914-237-5121. You can register for the run here.
