Hey, NYC! Curious to know how many people attended the run this past Saturday and how it went. Any photos to share or stories to tell? If so, we'd love to share 'em in our Facebook album:http://www.facebook.com/med...
Send your photos/stories to [masked].
Thanks for a great run all!
Hi Guys! Very exciting day tomorrow, Lets try to be on time (aim for 8:50) , try to hydrate well since is going to be a very hot day! Can't wait to meet you all, it's sooo much fun to run together! I think we should meet inside the running track , say the north side where the start of the 100mt is. Access to the East River Park is possible either using the overpass on 10th St or on 6th St and then is a short walk to the Running Trck, Both bathrooms and fountains are available at the track. Ciao
Ben's Route mapping is perfect! And if you don't feel going all the 9 miles is easy to get the subway in the east side at 14th and 8th ave and cut it short!
I meant west side obviously... :-)
I'd like to bring someone to run with us, do they need to sign in? Also, where are we meeting exactly? I can't wait!
Hey New York runners! Awesome to see all the comments on your board.
Hope you all saw the news that RunKeeper's adding a twist to Saturday's RunKeeper Global Meetup--we'll feature the largest group on our blog, including photos and your tips for how to make these events a success!
New York is currently in the lead with London close behind. You better believe our Boston-based RunKeeper team's going to give you a run for your money =)
Happy running on Saturday!
The RunKeeper Team
I'll have a guest in town who is not into running 7-9 mi at 9am! Next time!
If everyone is up to it, I think it would be a wonderful thing to run south to battery park,around and up north on the west side and across town on 14th street and come back to the running track! A phenomenal run that celebrates running in the city! A lot of fun! It's 7.5 miles, plenty of fountains on both sides along the way (and restrooms) and such diversity and inspiring views... What do you guys think?
I'm down for doing this, but my basic want here is to meet other runners so that I can build up my network of possible running buddies.
Sounds like a good plan Ben only thing I really advise from my experience with Team for Kids groups that is best to try to get there 8:45 and start at 9, it's really hot and earlier works better!
Not going to make it sorry guys signing up for the rugged maniac in nj on this day have fun though
I'm actually kinda excited for this run now. I didn't really know what to expect but these comments are great.
lol are we all running as a group, or we're trying to break records here?
we can do pace groups! so it's fun for everybody..
Love the run. Will be nice to have company!
I'm new to Meetup...Do we just show up at the track and run together?
I have no clue same here I am new to this.
I will be there. Be nice to have people to run with instead of only being solo. Anyone here looking into the spartan race or the tough mudder I am signed up for both events.
So bummed that I'll be out of town!
