Local Finishes Second In Rob’s Run

Hicksville’s Jill Loveland, 28, scored as the second finisher among the women in the 25-29 age group in the 21st annual New York Blood Services Rob’s Run, a 5 Kilometer cross country race held through Stillwell Woods in Woodbury on Sunday morning, Dec. 1. Loveland finished the run in 22 minutes, 29 seconds.

The weather for this year’s run was nearly perfect for a late Fall cross country race, and the net result was a bunch of pretty impressive performances — and lots of enthusiasm — on the part of the 534  finishers. The run was staged by the Greater Long Island Running Club in cooperation with the Town of Oyster Bay.

“We were thrilled to see Jill Loveland do so well in this event,” observed Run Co-Director Sue Fitzpatrick. She is a great competitor and a valued member of the club."
