Central Park Fun Runs

This running group is for anyone who just wants to go for a run and make new friends. If you're looking to get into better shape or become a better runner we can help you with that. But our main focus is to enjoy the run around Central Park.

We run anywhere from 2-6 miles depending on what everyone is looking to do. We will meet at Columbus Circle behind the Gold statue to warm up stretch and have a chance to meet everyone and coordinate the run. 

The New York Running company at the Time Warner Center (located on the 2nd floor) has changing rooms, and free bag check also has lockers but you have to bring your own lock and closes at 9pm.

We can start off as a group and run as a group if everyone wants to run at the same pace but others are more than welcome to break up into smaller groups for those of you who might want to run a little faster. 

After each run we head to our local bar DJ Reynolds to grab a drink or two and get something to eat and it gives us a chance to get to know each other.

I'll will post my info in the comments the day of the run.

    I used to run a lot, but not so much anymore. My left knee is a little bad, so I may not be able to run that far! Also, I'm not 100% that I can attend since sometimes I have to work late unexpectedly.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
