Weekly Group Runs
Guests and prospective members welcome!
Our weekly group runs meet on the sidewalk on the side of Grand Army Plaza closest to the park, near the intersection of Union St. and Prospect Park West. Distances and paces vary according to who shows up to run. We will usually go around and share our names, paces, and distances for the day before splitting up into groups accordingly. This is a great opportunity to meet other PPTC members and connect with new training partners. If you’re looking to run between 8 and 11 min/mile, you will likely be able to find a part of the group to fall into.
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!
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.
Though not as well-attended as our weekend runs, runners will often do a few loops of the park with each other (and sometimes polish off the evening with a drink).
Want to run early mornings, late at night, or in the middle of the day? PPTC Members frequently organize informal group runs. If there's a time that you like to run that you don't see listed on this site, you can probably find teammates who would like to join you! Contact email@example.com to find out more or to be directed to the appropriate subgroup.
