Even if it’s too soggy to run outside, the weather is still perfect for preparing for the eighth annual Daily News Press Run. That’s because in addition to running and walking, participants can compete in a costume contest, and it’s never too early to start working on pulling together the perfect costume.

Since the proceeds of the race support the Newspapers in Education program, which helps classroom teachers to use daily newspapers to develop reading comprehension, critical thinking and a wider world view, it’s not surprising that the theme of the costume contest is literary characters.
