Two weeks before the NYC marathon = our tradition of running the last 15.5 miles of the course.
This is open to both those racing in two weeks and those who want to run 15.5 miles.
We will have 2 (maybe 3) pace groups.
7:40am start time (meet @ 7:35am) for those running 9:45-10:00 pace
8:00am start time (meet @7:55am) for those running 8:30 or faster
*If there is interest there will be a 7:45 pace group that also starts at 8:00am
We will start on the course at the corner of Broadway Ave. and Bedford Ave. in Brooklyn.
Take the J train to the Marcy Ave subway stop which drops you off 3 blocks east. This is right by Peter Luger’s steakhouse if you want a landmark.
There is also a McDonalds on Broadway as you walk towards Bedford in case you want to make a pit stop before starting.
We will follow the course as closely as possible (can’t run on the access road to the 59th st bridge) and end at the finish line at Tavern on the Green.
Timing should allow us to join normal SMR brunch afterwards.
There will be a group leaving the UES on the 6 train at 7:10am from 86th/Lex for the 8am start. Join there if you want to travel together
Lastly, I recommend a water bottle as there aren’t any water fountains until about 11 miles in to the run when we get back into Manhattan.
Feel free to text me if you have any questions.
