Ready to Join?

Join me running down Park Ave while it's closed for traffic during the City Summer Streets Protected content .

You can also just meetup with us and then bike, skate or walk your own route.

Check out our pictures from last year's event here:
Protected content

We'll meet at the ramp at 40th Street and Park Ave (SEE PIN) and run first around Grand Central Station (on the road that is NEVER open for pedestrians) and then down on Park Avenue to Chambers Street, then over the Brooklyn Bridge, back over Manhattan Bridge and back up to Midtown on Park Ave. This will be a run of at least 10 miles but you can drop out at any time of course.

There are several rest stops/water stations and fun/foto ops and many activities (including some free snacks for runners) on the way and we spontaniously decide where we want to stop and enjoy the activities.

We'll be running slow conversational pace (flexible but probably around Protected content and making stops as needed. If we have many people show up we can split into groups by pace. Bring fuel if you think you need it or a bottle that you can fill up at the rest stops provided by the city.

I will email my cell phone number a day before the event so we can make sure to find each other.
