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
We will meet at 7pm in the same location as the Tuesday night run on the 72nd transverse overlooking the Bethesda Fountain. Your 1-2 mile warm up run should be done independently before meeting at 72nd. Workouts vary but we generally do short intervals at higher paces than on tempo runs done on Tuesday with jog recoveries in between or oscillating paces between mid to fast end of your personal paces tolerances. If you need a place to drop off a bag the go to location for folks who don’t live near the park is the lockers available at the Jack Rabbit’s store on the 2nd floor of the TWC at Columbus Circle.
