Fairway Markets. Just thinking of their new Pelham store and its 75,000 square feet of gastronomical goodies makes my mouth water. Any place that can stock 600 varieties of cheese is going to know a thing or two about food.
And now they are a sponsor of the Paine to Pain Trail Half Marathon, and will be providing food at the finish line. This should be a big step up from the food we had the last three years as we work hard to make this race even better than ever and improve the finish line festivities.
Fairway’s commitment comes fresh on the heels of adding REI as a sponsor just weeks ago, as they opened their brand new store in Yonkers at Ridge Hill.
REI and Fairway join our already impressive roster of sponsors (listed below) that are providing necessary goods and services for the race. Make sure to visit their booths at the finish line or check for their coupons and other goody bag swag!

VOLUNTEERS STILL WANTED
We need more volunteers to make the race go as smoothly as it has the past 3 years. Water stops, registration, finish line, parking, hanging signs, marking trails, we got lots to do.
And if the thrill of volunteering isn’t enough by itself, we also offer to any volunteer a $10 discount off of next year’s race.
And, if you can coax someone else to join our merry band of volunteers, we will give you another $5 off next year’s race. (Max discount $15, don’t forget, this is a fundraiser for the trails.)
To volunteer for one of the great half marathon trail races in the northeast U.S., please contact our Volunteers Poobah: Greg Stern.
You can also follow us online with updates as we get close to the race by joining the Paine To Pain Facebook group, or following us on that Twitter thingie (@PaineToPain).
