32nd Annual Rockville Centre 10K Run - Spnsored by Inc Village of Rockville Centre Parks and Recreation Department
We had a spectacular Fall day for our annual 10K run which meanders through our beautiful village. This is a great run to weave in and out of our side streets as all the leaves are changing colors and you can run past some wonderful homes - some streets that you may never have turned down before!
There is a 1 mile run which started at 9:00 am for the childeren and a 5K and 10K which started at 10 am.
It is a wonderful community event where the streets are blocked off and many people come out and cheer the runners on.!! People of all ages participate!
