What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
We will be doing a Prospect Park training run meeting at the Grand Army Plaza Entrance to the Park (right outside the Park) at 7:00 PM. The planned run will be posted at last 24 hours before the start of the training run. Please post your planned pace for the run so we can make sure everyone will have a companion to run with!
Our Tuesday night Central Park training workouts are typically tempo runs or hill repeats. These workouts are usually very well attended with a wide variety of paces. The meeting spot is at the 72nd street transverse by Bethesda Fountain. There we'll give the full workout details, including distance, pacing groups, expected run time, and where we plan on meeting at the end. You can expect a typical workout to be between 5 and 8 miles (or less during hill workouts). A note on warm ups: We do not do a full warm up as a group in Central Park, so we encourage you to show up at 7 p.m. having jogged an easy mile or two ahead of time. If it's your first time meeting us, feel free to come a few minutes early with any questions. There are many other groups who meet on 72nd St so look for the one with folks in Whippet singlets. Please note that there is no place to store bags inside Central Park. Pack light, or store your bags at a nearby gym if you are a member. Another option is the JackRabbit Store (formerly New York Running Company) at the Time Warner Center, which stays open until 9pm: https://www.jackrabbit.com/info/locations/store/new-york-running-company-time-warner-center
Guess who's back?! Special edition! This will be a group bib pickup run. We will run to the Bkn Half pre-party. Get bibs then do an easy run back to the Douglass for eats & drinks. Join us every Wednesday for a 5-6 mile conversation pace run departing from The Douglass. Afterwards we'll gather for post run pints and tasty pub fare. This is a great run for new members and more established members alike, and perfect opportunity to get to know your teammates better in an informal setting. Bag drop is available. The Douglass is conveniently located within walking distance of the Atlantic Ave Station (2, 3, 4, 5, N, R, Q, B, D, LIRR) and Union Street Station (R). http://www.thedouglass.com/
