Race Cap & Time Limit: This race is currently capped at 1500 runners. The official time limit is 5 hours and 15 minutes but as a rule of thumb the last thing we unplug is the finish line mat – take your chances over 5:15.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female runners in each race and the top 3 in each ten year age group.

Packet Pickup & Bib Mailing: TBD. Bib Mailing will be offered as well for an additional fee at a later date.

Amenities: A great long sleeve race shirt and an amazing finisher medal will be included. Bag check and toilets will be provided. Hot chocolate, bagels, spreads, and fresh fruit will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread.

Directions: Take the C train to 102nd St and enter the park. Race HQ is located at the left of the 102nd street transverse near the finish line and the half starting line. The full starting line is about 1/2 mile away. Please check MTA Trip Planner for up to date and detailed mass transit directions and Google Maps for driving directions. Parking is limited at all of our events, we strongly encourage you to use mass transit.
