Labor Day Palisades Long Path Trail Run

We'll start at the bus station, run over the bridge, up the Palisades Long Path to the Palisades Park Headquarters and back (19 miles round trip).

If you would like to meet up with us on the New Jersey side, find us at the trail start just over the pedestrian bridge at 9:00am. Please indicate this in the comments when you RSVP.

I’ll be running at 9-10 minute/mile pace. Every pace is welcome, but be prepared to be on your own if you are faster/slower than the group. We are also welcome to turn around earlier or later if you want to do a different distance.

Here’s a map of the trail. The Long Path is marked “A” on the map and is marked with aqua blazes. Please familiarize yourself with the trail map before coming to the run.

Here's a list of landmarks along with their distance from the start on the NJ side.

I’ve also made a Google Map that shows the trail along with several points of interest, including restrooms and places to get water. This map is approximate - do not rely on it for navigation!

(Note: I had originally scheduled an event for Van Cortlandt Park, but there is a VCTC event there on Labor Day, so I decided to do this in the Palisades instead.)

    It was a power trio. Thanks, Jim and David, for introducing me to the Palisades Long Path. That's a great trail, but the next time I'm there I hope it's less humid.

    Damn... this would have been great- if my legs weren't shot from my 50 miler last Saturday!

    I'm not sure if or how this will affect your plans. The George Washington Bridge Bus Station building will shut down Monday, August 25 and stay closed for about a year for renovation.

      I just heard this on the radio this morning! I'll update the announcement accordingly.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
