The Central Park Reservoir Loop


Sunday, January 1st, at 3:00 PM

We'll meet at the usual spot,

at the bench on Central Park West,

at the corner of W. 86th St,

right by the entrance to the park. 

Subway: The C train stops right there.

 The 1 train stops on 86th & Broadway.

Reservoir Loop Map & Details Loop 

                 New Year's



Try to arrive around 3:00 PM. Keep 

 in mind that on weekends, the trains 

 aren't always on time. We'll have

about 30 minutes to meet & greet, &

we'll start running at about 3:30.


If You Arrive late:


In case you arrive late,

after 3:30, just walk right into the

park at the West 86th street entrance

& walk straight ahead onto the path

surrounding the reservoir.

I'll be wearing a black DGA

(Directors Guild of America)

baseball hat and I have blond hair.

That's me in the center:

As always, I'll have a car where

you can put any of your stuff in

if you like, while we run.


For New Members And

First Time Runners:

Our group is a group of runners

from mostly professional fields.  

Great people to run and to

socialize with.  


Plus, after just your first run

with us, the workout and the

running tips you receive, will  

make you a better runner.  




Once again, it's cool if you're just

getting going as a runner. You won't

be the only one. I'll give you 

 running tips & you'll improve rapidly.

 We're a cool & friendly bunch.

You'll get inspired and have fun and

soon you'll be in great shape.

After we run & our endorphins 

  have kicked in for a turbo-blast 

  known as a runner's high,

 we'll go have drinks, socialize

& spread some New Year's Cheer.




We'll be going to a nearby

cool Bar/Lounge where we can

drink and socialize.


All Drinks Will Be 

1/2 Price Until 10  


For those who want to grab

a bite to eat, there will be a

wide selection of affordable

tasty food to choose from.



The sweet potato fries rock!

    It was fun to run with new people. I also learned how to run without putting a stress on posture. That learning eased my tensed running. I enjoyed it and would like to show up again. Thank you!

    Just what I needed! We didn't just turn the music on in our headphones and run. Instead, we were challenged by doing sprint work, hill work, and focusing on proper running form. These are the things I likely will not want to perform alone, but that are necessary to increase endurance. So, I was thoroughly pleased with everything about the day- including the energy of the folks around me. I'll be back!

    First, at the bar everyone sang Happy Birthday to Irene, and with all the people that came, it was a wonderful moment. As one of the most kind and sweetest people in the whole world, she was most deserving of it. :-) Today we had an awesome group of members that came and they brought their A game. Warm and friendly, and fun to hang out and to run with. The group's good vibe gave us all extra energy to start 2012 with a good, strong run. Afterward, we went to a fun old school bar and had some good food and drinks and cool conversations. Today's run got the New Year rolling just right. If you couldn't make it, you really missed out and hopefully you'll be there at our next run. Thanks to everyone who came and special Happy Birthday wishes to a very special person. :-)

    5 Stars! So happy I came. There were so many runners to meet and I felt like part of the group right away. Very friendly. The organizers were thoughtful and I got great running and training tips that I'll be using. Thanks Marcello - Happy Birthday Irene - and Happy New Year to everyone!
