Recurring event see all

September 23, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Weekly Group Run: A loop of the park to energize your Thursday.

When: 6:30pm every Thursday evening, followed by a Social Meet-Up on the Third Thursday of the month.

Where: Meet at Columbus Circle, Merchant's Gate under the Maine Monument (there's a gold statue at the top of it). Social following the run on every third Thursday

Distance: 5 mile loop or 3-4 mile run/walk

Pace: Various, depending on group.  

Duration: About 1 hour.

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, we instead run clockwise and on the Bridle Path.  
Run/Walk group will take two lower loops for 3.5 miles with ability to add on for 4.

Baggage: You may bring a lock and stow your stuff at The NY Running Company store in the Time Warner Center (2nd floor). They're open until 9:00. 

Leaders: Contact Dave Kleckner, Casey Smyth and Wendy Mitchell with any questions.

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!  
Starts: Around 7:30pm

We hope to see you there!
