New York Flyers Special Event
Starting Point: Maine Monument at Columbus Circle
Paces: 9:00 mm and 11:30 mm
Distances: 3 to 15 miles
There are 145 public monuments honoring historic men in New York City. There are six monuments dedicated to eight historic women in New York. On Saturday March 26, New York Flyers and friends will salute these women with our Monumental Women Run, a three to 15 mile celebration that will visit these monuments and more sites that highlight the contributions women have made to our city and the world.
There’s a bit of good news in New York’s limited tribute to women. When you honor only eight women from the last 800 years, chances are they will be extraordinary and, indeed, each woman conveys a compelling story. I fell in love with every one of them while researching this run. I think you will as well. Visit their monuments and share their stories on one of the most exciting runs you will ever enjoy in the world’s greatest city.
The run will support groups at 9 and 11:30 minute/mile paces. While most of the run is in or next to parks, much will be on city streets. So, as always, be careful out there!
