Achilles Race Cheering Section

The Achilles hope and Possibility Race is by far the most inspiring race in the NYRR race calendar. Let's show our support for Achilles and for the many disabled athletes taking part in this race by creating one of our now famous cheering sections towards the end of the race. With many of us racing on Saturday, you could do some easy miles in the park beforehand and come join the fun as we encourage every athlete to Drop the Hammer. See you there.

    Hey guys, lets starting our cheering on the east end of the 72nd transverse (where we cheered the mini and Portugal) for the start of the race, then we'll trot over to the west end for the finish of the race. Ok?
