    Players to Run in Snowflake 4-Miler as Part of Marketing Relationship

    NEW YORK - (February 20, 2002) - The New York Power and the New York Road Runners have teamed-up to form a unique relationship as the professional women's soccer team enters its second season. The two organizations will not only work together on marketing related issues, but will also help bring the relationship of soccer and running closer together.

    As part of the relationship, the Power will hold their second annual pre-season training run in Central Park, only this time it will take place during the New York Road Runners' Snowflake 4-miler set for Saturday, February 23rd. The Snowflake 4-Miler is an annual winter tradition since 1979 on the New York Road Runners race calendar. Last year's race attracted approximately 3,000 runners. The loop course in Central Park starts and finishes on the East Drive at 99th Street. There are two starts, the men at 8:30 a.m. and the women at 9:30 a.m.

    "As a member of the NYRR, I have always enjoyed their first class preparation and execution of events. They are a worldwide entity and we are very proud to have our team involved with such a tremendous New York institution," stated Power General Manager Susan Marenoff.

    "I have long admired the stamina and speed of soccer players as they continuously run up and down the field during games. Having the NY Power players run in our road race is just the beginning of what we hope is a long and close relationship between the two organizations," said Mary Wittenberg, Executive Vice President of the NYRR.

    The New York Power is one of eight founding teams in the Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA), which began play in the spring of 2001. Led by WUSA MVP, Top Offensive Player, First-Team All Star and U.S. National Team standout Tiffeny Milbrett, the Power are set to begin their second season on April 13 when they visit the Washington Freedom.

    The NYRR was founded in 1958 with a membership of 47 - today New York Road Runners (NYRR) is the largest, most active running organization in the world. NYRR is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of running for health, recreation and competition and provides full professional services related to all aspects of racing, including course certification, computer scoring and event promotion. NYRR has a full-time staff of more than 60 employees, supplemented by a network of thousands of volunteers, serving more than 34,000 members from every U.S. state and more than 100 countries across the globe.
