Fourth Annual Staten Island 'Cold Feet' 10K to be Held on Saturday
NEW SPRINGVILLE — Get your thick socks ready Staten Island runners, it might be a cold one.
The fourth annual Staten Island “Cold Feet” 10K trail race will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday at LaTourette Park and Golf Course in New Springville.
Runners are challenged to run in any weather conditions mother nature throws at them, and will be professionally timed, according to the Greenbelt Conservancy’s website, who helps organize the event.
Previous races have been run in snow and cold winds, and weather reports show that the mercury on Saturday could get as low as 23 degrees.
“We run in all weather conditions and, based on past race experiences, have found it can be done,” the site said.
An award ceremony for runners with the best time will be held after the race.
The race will start and finish at the David LaTourette House and follow a route that will take runners through the hilly Greenbelt trails nearby, the site said.
The organizers will hand out refreshments and race appropriate apparel, and runners older than 21 can head to the golf course's bar after the event for a drink.
