FWO run, 2016 T-shirt design contest, photos, registrations

FWO run

Let’s open with a news that will shock the running community. (Aside from the death of the LI legendary runner, Bill Benson, who passed away in July). We confirmed from two independent sources that Fly with the Owls 4-mile, (FWO run) won’t take place this year. The venue’s website is still up but doesn’t offer any further details. The FWO run and Malverne 5K were my favorite. I was able to just open the door and get out to the start line without having to drive. It couldn’t get any better. I ran my first Fly with the Owls in 2007. The fact that we lost a member of the Southwest Nassau Run Series, contributed to our decision to cancel the series. Hopefully, this year’s hiatus will energize a group of enthusiasts who will renew the run in years to come. We invite you to help our team this year and we’ll help you build your run next year.
