Grand Army Plaza

Group Runs

NOTE: The Wednesday runs now meet at 7:00 p.m. at JackRabbit Park Slope (151 7th Avenue, between Carroll and Garfield).

Weekend runs: Saturday at 8:00 a.m., Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

We meet on the sidewalk on the Park side of Grand Army Plaza, near where Union Street ends (map).

Distances and paces vary according to the group make up. This is an ideal set up for finding training partners to suit your goals. Guests are welcome to join us.

For Saturday runs we now have a “running-buddy calendar” so you can see whether others might be running at your pace and mileage. If

Most of us usually do not run in the Prospect Park on Saturdays; we usually go somewhere and back. We recommend you bring a MetroCard just in case. Sundays, we typically run one loop of the park, as a recovery run from Saturday’s long run.

Wednesday night runs

now meet at 7:00 pm, also at JackRabbit. These runs have become well established, and provide a chance for evening runners to run with the group. The fine folks at JackRabbit will provide bag drop only until 8:00 p.m., so if you’re running longer, you won’t be able to pick up your stuff!
