Ride a Vintage Subway Train to a 5 Mile Run

Let’s ride on a vintage subway train and then run 5 miles! The temperature on Sunday is forecast to be in the 60s, making this an uber-fantastic outing. 

More information about the vintage train is here:

We will meet in the Queens Plaza station, by the first/front car of the Manhattan-bound E platform. We’ll meet at 10:30am, to catch the vintage train scheduled to depart at 10:44. Because schedules are sometimes not reality and we don’t wish to leave you behind, 
please be prompt. We will ride the vintage train to the 2nd Avenue station in the East Village. 

Our run in the warmth will begin at 2nd Avenue and Houston Street. We’ll cross the Williamsburg Bridge, run through Williamsburg and Greenpoint before crossing the Pulaski Bridge back into LIC to finish our run at Queens Plaza. Total distance will be about 5ish miles. 

This casual run is open to all regardless of pace, as long you are able to run the full distance without difficulty. If you are not able to complete this distance, you are welcome to run with us for as long as you’re able - but, please be able to find your way home on your own (or, at least, have some idea of where you are going). If you have questions, please contact the organizer.

    It looks like we've got a little over a dozen people signed up (so far) for our vintage subway ride +5ish mile run in the warmth tomorrow. There is a chance of light showers throughout the day, so please be prepared (we will run, regardless). If you might like to add miles on top of the 5ish already planned, you can join your semi-sane organizer who plans to run an extra 15 (for a total of about 20) miles. You can add any portion of that that you'd like. Just let me know at some point during our outing on Sunday.
    See y'all in the morning in Queens Plaza!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
