Details: The Arches and Bridges Run has long been among the most loved of all Flyer runs. There is no cooler place to run in the heat of summer than through the arches, bridges and bridle paths of Central Park. And, the arches and bridges are the jewels in the Park’s crown, among the most beautiful structures in New York. Important notes: The route is beautiful, but it is surprisingly tough. 8 miles will feel like 12. There are water fountains throughout the route and rest rooms about every two miles. Safety first! Routes have been designed with safety in mind. However, there are some stairs and some paths are not entirely smooth. Although the Run goes through the heart of Central Park, this is a new route for many so caution is essential!
