Treetops to Rooftops on an Overcast Day

Saturday, June 14, 2014

There were 363 finishers in the Treetops to Rooftops Race over the Walkway. It was a bit of a cloudy and cool day, which was great for running.

The finish battle between Mike Chow and Omar Perez was quite a sight (see the photo with this news story for an idea of what it was like. Photo courtesy of Bob Kopac.). Spectators had a wonderful view and couldn't really tell who crossed first. Thank goodness for the Chronotrack RF scoring! The difference in times was .3 of a second, that is about 1/3 of a second. Mike finished in 16.04.1 and Omar finished in 16.04.4. Congrats guys!

Many thanks to race director Sue O'Neil and all the staff from the Walkway for being such good hosts. Also, thanks to the many volunteers who made this such a good day. It takes much planning and coordination to pull off a race of this size.

Also, please patronize our sponsors, who help provide goodies for the race:

  • MVP Healthcare
  • Healthquest
  • Pepsi
  • Fishkill Bagel Shoppe
  • My Brother Bobby's Salsa
  • Adams Fairacre Farm
  • Walkway Over the Hudson.

Results are posted in Race Results>>2007-today. Photos by Nin Lei have also been published in Race Results>>Race Photo Albums. Bob Kopac and Charlotte Kopp were also on the course taking pictures and we expect them soon, so check back. If you ran the race, bet there is a photo of you.
