What we're about

This group is for all runners (even roadies!) but we have an emphasis on trail and ultras for sure!

Reach out to us if you would like to lead a regular run and we will post to the meetup. It can be a regular trail, distance, or even a shorter road run.

New York Trail & Ultra Running was started by Michael Oliva who now resides in Colorado. The meetup continues to thrive though thanks to its dedicated run organizers!

Palisades Long Path Trail Run

George Washington Bridge Bus Station

We are now accepting member contributions to help defray our Meetup costs ($200/year). Once contributions hit $200 in a year, contributions will be disabled. Go to https://secure.meetup.com/New-York-Trail-Ultrarunning/contribute/ to contribute! It's time for another Palisades trail run! This run will start at the bus station, go over the bridge, up the Palisades Long Path and back. I’ll be running at a 10-12 minute/mile pace and aiming for the State Line Cafe (25 miles round-trip from the bus station). Every pace and distance is welcome, but be prepared to run on your own if you can't find someone who matches yours. Other notable turn-around points include the Park Headquarters (19 miles round-trip), Alpine Lookout (16 miles round-trip), Greenbrook Sanctuary (13 miles round-trip) and the Rockefeller Lookout (10 miles round-trip). If you would like to meet up with us on the New Jersey side, find us at the trail start just over the pedestrian bridge at 8:50am. Please indicate this in your RSVP. Note that if you turn around before the Park Headquarters, you might be looking at up to 13 miles between water sources. Please make sure you plan your hydration accordingly! Useful wayfinding information: • Here’s a map of the trail (http://www.njpalisades.org/pdfs/map.pdf). The Long Path is marked “A” on the map and is marked with aqua blazes. Please familiarize yourself with the trail map before coming to the run. • Here's a list of landmarks (http://www.nynjtc.org/book/1-george-washington-bridge-nynj-state-line) along with their distance from the bus station. • Here's a Google Map (http://goo.gl/maps/6nhCZ) that shows the trail along with several points of interest, including restrooms and places to get water. This map is approximate - do not rely on it for navigation! As always, please view the group's About page (http://www.meetup.com/New-York-Trail-Ultrarunning/about/) and make sure you understand your responsibilities as an event participant.
