2014 Rivertown StrollerDerby + Entry Giveaway

I enjoy running with the boys in the stroller although I don’t do it as frequently as I would like since I’m focused on marathon training (and would prefer to run the prescribed pace and distance). I’ve run one race (fun run) with the stroller and LOVED it. I would definitely do more races with a stroller if they were allowed – but a lot of the races I’ve signed up for often prohibit the use of strollers (which is understandable if the course is tight).


And I’ve never participated in an event where there was a special stroller division (although I know some races have these). Which is why I love what my friend Lindsay is organizing! Enter the Rivertown Strollerderby! stroller derby Not only are strollers allowed at this race, but they take center stage with the chance to win up to $1,000 (top three finishers w/ strollers win $). Highlights from the website:

  • Date: Sunday, September 21 at 9am
  • Location: Hastings on Hudson (just 29 miles north of Grand Central)
  • What: A unique race event designed to encourage moms and dads to keep pushing after baby.
  • Who can participate: All runners and walkers are encouraged to participate (even if you don’t have children or a stroller!)
  • Prizes: Stroller runners take center stage here, with an opportunity to win cash prizes up to $1,000.
  • Proceeds: All proceeds from the event will be donated to the national non-profit, Family-to-Family, to launch a fitness/running program for disadvantaged mothers in the New York area.
  • Post-Race: A family fitness festival will take place immediately post-race and will include a post-run yoga cool-down by Rivertown Mamas, a bounce house, trampolines, family-fitness demonstrations,  face-painting, health food vendors and more family fun.

I had every intention of participating in and supporting this awesome event, but was already signed up for the RnR Philly Half Marathon (same day).
