NYCRUNS invites you to take part in the 2015 Frozen Bonsai Half Marathon!

Course: The race, now in its third year, will take you on a wintry tour of Central Park’s rolling hills. The race begins on East Drive at 100th St.  Runners will run across the 102nd St. transverse, turning left onto West Drive heading south.  Runners will go around the bottom of the park and then head north on East Drive.  Runners will then turn left at the 72nd St. transverse, running across the park to West Drive, where they will turn left on West Drive and head south around the bottom of the park.  Runners will then head north on East Drive completing one full loop of the park (yes, that includes the Harlem Hills) and finishing on the 102nd St. transverse. Half-Marathon Map

Race Cap & Time Limit: This race is currently capped at 1,500 runners. The official time limit is 3 hours but as a rule of thumb the last thing we unplug is the finish line mat – take your chances over 3:00.

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

Packet Pickup: Pre-race packet pickup is still to be determined. Raceday packet pickup will take place in the festival area beginning at 7:30 AM and closing SHARPLY at 8:30 AM.

Amenities: A great long sleeve race shirt will be included. All finisher’s will receive a medal.  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. or the 6 train to 103rd St. and enter the park. Race HQ is located at the left of the 102nd St. transverse near the finish line.  Please check MTA Trip Planner for up to date and detailed mass transit directions and Google Maps for driving directions.
