When: Sunday, August 27th. Arrive by 7:00-7:15 AM to use the 3RD FLOOR bathrooms if needed. NOTE: The 2nd floor bathrooms will most likely not be open by then. We will begin check-in at 7:00 but Baggage Check-in will begin at 7:30 AM inside the store. Once you complete checking in, you will IMMEDIATELY head over to the Maine Monument (Columbus Circle) and meet with your PACE GROUP for a pre-run briefing. Pace groups will start to leave the Maine Monument at approximately 7:50 AM.
Where: Fleet Feet Running Store on the 2nd floor of the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle (60th/Broadway) Note: For insurance and safety reasons, all participants (Flyers and non-Flyer guests alike) must sign in before starting. Thank you for your cooperation. Bag watch will be provided by the host running store.
Course Map/Distance: The full distance of this run is 20 miles, but it is easy to shorten it by finishing at the Manhattan end of the Queensboro Bridge (16 miles), the Queens end of the Queensboro Bridge (15 miles) or at any of the many nearby subway stops along the way.
Turn By Turn Directions: Start at Fleet Feet at Time Warner Center and run around the lower loop in Central Park, then west on 72nd Street to the Hudson River Greenway. Take the Greenway south and then cross east on Warren Street through City Hall Park across the Brooklyn Bridge to the steps to exit the bridge. Run around the perimeter of the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Steiner Studios heading north along the Brooklyn waterfront until reaching the Pulaski Bridge to cross in to Queens. Continue heading north to the Queensboro Bridge. After crossing the Queensboro Bridge continue directly to Jackrabbit at Time Warner Center for a shorter run or back in to Central Park to complete the full 20 miles ending at Jackrabbit at Time Warner Center
Fluid Stations: There are three fluid stations along the route. The first fluid station will be at Hudson River Greenway and Chambers St, around mile 7.1 The second fluid station will be around mile 11.1 at Kent Av and Clymer St. in Brooklyn. The third fluid station is around mile 15 in Queens just before the Queensboro Bridge at the intersection of 11th street and Queens Plaza South. Each fluid station will have water, Gatorade, and PowerGels.
There are some public water fountains and bathrooms along part of the route.
Pace groups: There will be at least one pacer for each group starting at 8:00 minutes/mile through 12:00/13:00 minutes/mile at 30 second intervals. We will help group runners who may want to run sub 8:00 minutes/mile if there is any interest.
More Details: Come join the New York Flyers for the first of our two annual Three Bridges runs! This is fantastic training for the NYC Marathon, as it parallels the NYC Marathon course for much of the way and reaches the Queensboro Bridge at the same mileage point as you will during the NYC Marathon. Open to all!
