(See below for free Sunday morning "Cold Feat" training runs
organized by our friends at the Staten Island Atlhetic Club)
The Greenbelt’s challenging “Cold Feat” 10-K Trail Race is brought to you by the Greenbelt Conservancy, King of the Mountain Events and NYC Parks. We are grateful to the friendly staff at LaTourette golf course for allowing us to share their beautiful facilities on race day. The golf course Grille Room Bar will be open post race to serve those over 21.
Start/finish is by the federal style David LaTourette House. The course begins on the rolling fairways and takes you off into the surrounding Greenbelt trails – rustic and hilly. Due to elevations, parts of this course are challenging, making that feeling of crossing the finish line even more rewarding. We run in all weather conditions and, based on past race experiences, have found it can be done! This race will be professionally timed, culminating in an awards ceremony. Refreshments and race appropriate apparel are provided for runners.
The first Cold Feat 10-K, was held in 2010 and a great time was had by all (despite the nearly two-feet of snow accumulation from several previous storms and frigid temperatures). A group of more than 100 hardy runners endured to finish the race earning their fleece mittens and hot chocolate! The 2011 race brought cold temperatures and a biting wind. For our 2012 and 2013 races, the weather was on our side and no one got frostbite!
