Upcoming Weekend Races: March 30-31

Spring?! Is that you?! The Weather Channel says the temperature is going to crack the big 5-0 degrees, which means perfect running and racing conditions. And good thing, since there are a few big races on Saturday. The Red Hook Crit (separate men and women's 5Ks) promises fast 5K-fields, a competitive, 30K cyclist criterium (to spectate!), and an exclusive after-party (races start at 7:15 pm, party goes "till late"). The NYCRUNS Spring Fling 5K & 10K will take runners on a scenic loop (or two) around Roosevelt Island.

Who's ready to race? Or just enjoy a long run without a hat? Tell us your plans and goals in the comments below.
