Our Manhattan long run this Saturday will be dedicated to our teammate Jessy Scarpone, who passed away this week.
We will be changing our usual meeting place from Time Warner Center to the first lawn in Central Park on the right side when entering at Columbus Circle (see photo), where we will take a moment of silence and offer an opportunity for some brief remarks.
We will break into pace groups per our usual pace bins, but will be starting with a solidarity run around the lower loop of Central Park and request that everyone try to keep together at a conversational pace as much as possible for that loop.
Following the run, Amity Hall (80 W 3rd Street) will open early at 10:30am for gathering/brunch. This run is open to the larger running community.
Donations can be made in Jessy's honor to the American Heart Association: https://www2.heart.org/site/SPageNavigator/donatenow_heart.html
