Regular Group Runs

 

Join us any day of the week for a run, but if you aren’t sure where to start, these regular group runs are a good way to meet new club members, give the club a test run, or work towards a goal of yours. All runs start at Grand Army Plaza unless otherwise noted.

Runners will often do a few easy loops of the park with each other (and sometimes polish off the evening with a drink). Paces usually range from 7:30 – 9:30/mi, but we often have slower paces make an appearance as well.

Once per month, we make this an official Pub Run. On these days, we start and finish at the Double Windsor (see calendar for more details).

Group Run

Pace:
8:30 – 10:30+ per mile
Distance: Varies
Location:
Grand Army Plaza
Contact: contact@pptc.org, Facebook

Most members use Saturday for their long runs. Common routes include: going over the Brooklyn Bridge; heading up to Williamsburg; and running around Battery Park in Manhattan, but we are always excited to try out new ideas, so please share if you have any!

If you want to check out the club for the first time, this is the best day to show up, as it is usually our most popular.

Speedier Long RUn

Time: 8:00 AM
Pace:
7:00 – 8:00 per mile
Distance: 14+ miles
Location:
Grand Army Plaza
Contact: contact@pptc.org, Facebook

Training for a sub-3 marathon? Push your pace with our speedier long runs (most Saturdays). These faster long runs often hover around 7:30/mi and can be anywhere from 14 – 20 miles, depending on where people are in their training schedules. We also incorporate faster intervals into easy long runs for marathon-specific training. We will meet at GAP at the same time as the regular group run, but will split off to plan our route and workout.

Sundays are often a recovery run from Saturday’s long run, although we do sometimes have folks looking to go longer. It all depends on the needs of the people who show up.
