Letter: Tough Mudder races good for Old Bethpage

As a spectator of the recent Tough Mudder races, I thought Old Bethpage Village Restoration was the perfect venue ["'Mudders' slog through Old Bethpage site," News, Aug. 16].

Participants were respectful and stayed on the marked paths. Obstacles were set up in open fields away from the historical buildings.

The village needs support and free publicity. A few years ago, there was talk of closing it. I don't know why more local schools don't visit. If the Tough Mudder raises awareness and interest, I'm all for it. I hope the historians who had a problem would agree that events that bring awareness to the village can only help attendance.
