We’ll start at the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal. (Meet inside the terminal, in the waiting area.) Then we’ll run over the bridge, up the Palisades Long Path to the Palisades Park Headquarters and back (19 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 9:00am. Please indicate this in the comments when you RSVP.
I’ll be running at 9-10 minute/mile pace. Every pace is welcome, but be prepared to be on your own if you are faster/slower than the group. We are also welcome to turn around earlier or later if you want to do a different distance.
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 start on the NJ side.
I’ve also made 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!
