New Members Group Run, Saturday, July 20, 8AM
Kicking off your fall marathon training? This will be a great opportunity to get in some miles, meet some training buddies, and bounce ideas off of veteran marathoners (because there's nothing runners love to talk about more than running)!
We’ll run one of our “usual” routes – down Union to Court Street and over the Brooklyn Bridge. From there, anyone looking to run long can loop around Battery Park City before heading back to Brooklyn.
Not training for a marathon, getting back into shape or just starting to run? We'd love to have you! There will be a group doing a relaxed loop of the park (3.35 miles).
Concerned about your pace? Don’t be! All paces are welcome. Whether you’re a 7:00 minute miler or a 12:00+ minute miler, we will have various pace leaders to run alongside. Distance is up to you...the pace groups will stop to regroup along the way and you can turn around when you are ready, or go long if you are feeling good! We'll stop at water fountains, but it never hurts to carry a water bottle or cash to buy water.
Look for a crowd of runners at Grand Army Plaza, behind the farmer’s market at the entrance to the park. Wear your PPTC colors if you have them!
At the end of our run, join us at Starbucks on 7th Ave between 1st Street and Garfield to keep the party rolling.
