Come join us and support our runners on NYC Marathon Day!
We will be in Bronx to cheer runners on as they approach the bridge back into Manhattan. Meet your teammates at the BP Gas Station on the northwest corner of East 138th St and Walton Ave — just a minute walk from the 138th St. 4/5 train.
Elite women will pass by around 11. Elite men and the field as a whole arrive around 11:15. Sub-3 hour Whippets start arriving before noon.
When we’re done cheering, the subway is nearby so we can meet our friends at the Dashing Whippets afterparty!
Closest subway stop: 4/5 to 138th St/Grand Concourse. After exiting, go west two very short blocks along the marathon course (slightly uphill, passing under an elevated roadway) to find us.
Runners, look for us ON YOUR RIGHT as you approach the Madison Ave Bridge.
Once again, Caitlin and Megan will be hosting a post Staten Island Half social right after the race.
Come join the SI natives and enjoy Flagship Brewery’s (http://theflagshipbrewery.com) freshly brewed beer in the tasting room! BBQ will be available across the street at their annual Roggenfest or order from the restaurant next door Pier 76 (http://www.pier76si.com).
Flagship Brewery is about a 13 min walk from Richmond County Ballpark: https://goo.gl/maps/Fm8KEWk3mc62
Our Tuesday night Central Park training workouts are typically tempo runs or hill repeats. These workouts are usually very well attended with a wide variety of paces.
The meeting spot is at the 72nd street transverse by Bethesda Fountain. There we’ll give the full workout details, including distance, pacing groups, expected run time, and where we plan on meeting at the end. You can expect a typical workout to be between 5 and 8 miles (or less during hill workouts).
A note on warm ups: We do not do a full warm up as a group in Central Park, so we encourage you to show up at 7 p.m. having jogged an easy mile or two ahead of time.
If it’s your first time meeting us, feel free to come a few minutes early with any questions. There are many other groups who meet on 72nd St so look for the one with folks in Whippet singlets.
Please note that there is no place to store bags inside Central Park. Pack light, or store your bags at a nearby gym if you are a member. Another option is the New York Running Company at the Time Warner Center, which stays open until 9pm: http://www.therunningcompany.net/new-yorks-homepage
Join us at the Lululemon store in SoHo for a 6 mile out and back along the Hudson River. Mingle with fellow runners and enjoy free refreshments after the run. The weather is looking gorgeous for Wednesday.
Please sign up for this Meetup if you would like to volunteer with a group of Dashing Whippets on NYC Marathon Sunday. We will work out with NYRR a good location for use to volunteer as a group. It will be somewhere close to public transportation and not too far from Manhattan. Details to be confirmed by August.
Let me know if you have questions. Thanks – Simon
