Come join PPTC in racing or cheering at the NYRR 5th Avenue Mile! This is a Team Points race, so we'd like to have a big PPTC showing. 
If you'd like to race--registration is still open. You can sign up here:

Note: Runners of all paces are encouraged to race. You can help the team if your time is fast enough to earn us points, but you cannot hurt the team by running slowly. 

About the race: 
The 5th Avenue Mile opens a beautiful 20-block stretch of 5th Avenue to runners of all ages and abilities who want to run their best mile in New York City. Each heat is short, and you can easily cheer for friends and teammates before or after you race. You can also watch the elites race by!

Course Info:

The start is on 5th Avenue near East 80th Street. You'll run south, and you can check your progress by looking at the digital clocks at every quarter-mile mark.
