NY SportsMed is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Front Runners New York Lesbian and Gay Pride Run. The 5 mile race will take place on June 23, 2012 in Manhattan and will feature races for both men and women. The festive race boasts some 5,000 participants annually and is marked by prize money, raffles and souvenirs. “We are thrilled to be sponsors of this race and it really is a natural fit for NYSM,“ said Adam Banks, CEO for NYSM.
The NY SportsMed Running Club, a New York Roadrunner Team, will be running in this year’s race.

The professional guidance of the NYSM trained physical therapists helps members prevent re-injury while training and improving their running form. The NYSM Running club will hold its first physical therapist supervised run on May 22, 2012 at 6:30pm and subsequent runs every Tuesday. Runners will meet at the NY SportsMed Columbus Circle location at 1841 Broadway and then run in Central Park. NYSM will also host four weekly workshops for runners looking to improve technique, run faster and safer.
