Putting on a quality event for our participants involves a lot of hard work and dedication from our volunteers, and a huge boost of support from our sponsors and other partners. Our races are Brooklyn neighborhood events, and we encourage you to support the local businesses that in turn support us. Many thanks to our main sponsors, JackRabbit and New York Methodist Hospital, for their ongoing support. Please click on the banners and links below to visit their sites
If you’re active in the New York running community, you may have noticed a close relationship between PPTC and local running event management company NYCRUNS. For the past few years, PPTC has worked with NYCRUNS to execute our annual PPTC races: NYCRUNS helps with race registration, timing and results for the Cherry Tree, Al Goldstein Speed Series, and Turkey Trot, all of which are PPTC races. NYCRUNS founder, Steve Lastoe, is a member of PPTC and currently serves on our Board of Directors; several key players on the NYCRUNS team are also active members of PPTC, including our Vice President, Michael Ring. Each organization has benefited from our close relationship, but at the end of the day, PPTC and NYCRUNS are distinct entities with distinct goals.
If you’re a member of PPTC, the important thing to remember is that the Cherry Tree, Al Goldstein Speed Series, and Turkey Trot are all PPTC races – so take pride in their production and volunteer your time to contribute to their successful execution. NYCRUNS will handle the administrative stuff for us – but the success of each of these races is in the hands of PPTC and our members.
