This is a 26.2 km route (~16 miles) that is meant to be done at close to marathon pace on a course that is similar to the marathon route. We will post a map of the route soon, but expect it to be similar to (or exactly the same as) last year's route starting in City Hall Park and ending in Astoria Park.

To help us make pacing teams, please register in advance at this link:

This year's route is the same as 2014.
