Route: When it's dark out in the evening, we run north on East Drive (counterclockwise) from Columbus Circle and cross over at the 102nd Street Transverse. We finish back near where we start at Columbus circle, on the park drive. When it's light out in the evening, sometimes we instead run clockwise and on the Bridle Path.

Description: The Thursday Night Group run has been revived, reorganized and otherwise reborn- again!!! Join us every Thursday for this run. Runners of all paces welcome. We try to buddy up and make sure no one runs alone, especially new or prospective Flyers. However, to be certain that you'll have company at your pace for the full loop, please bring a friend. All are welcome- members and non-members.
Third Thursday Social: Immediately following the run on the 3rd Thursday of each month is our monthly Third Thursday Social! Runners also meet up there after the run on most Thursdays!!
Starts: Around 7:30pm

We hope to see you there!
Just show up! If you have any questions, please contact one of the leaders.
All attendees are expected to adhere to NYS, RRCA and USATF guidelines.
