We will meet at McCarren Park Track on the border of Greenpoint/Williamsburg in Brooklyn. This is mile 12 of the NYC Marathon. I will go over running safety in the city.

Three time NYC Marathon participant and local running enthusiast! Living in Brooklyn for 20+ years. I've been running through Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan as part of my own training routine since 2012. I will take my guests on a relaxed 10k run covering the middle miles of the NYC marathon route, stopping every 1- 1.5 miles or so at interesting points on the course. Lots of photo opportunities, stopping as often as you like. We will run over two bridges and touch down in three boroughs, finishing in Central Park where the NYC marathon finish line is marked.
Beautiful McCarren Park, trendy Greenpoint, Pulaski Bridge, views of Manhattan, Long Island City waterfront and piers, Pepsi Cola sign Queensboro (59th St) Bridge crossing over the East River and Roosevelt Island, Plaza Hotel and along Central Park South to Columbus Circle, into south west corner of Central Park. I will alert you when restrooms and water fountains are available. I will describe how it feels to run these miles during the marathon
This is a very relaxed run with short breaks every 1-1.5 mi or as often as you like. Some walking is fine. New runners welcome! Msg me if you need a different day or time. For a shorter run exploring points south on the East River, check out my other experience: Run the BMW Three Bridge Fun Run
