Course Instructions: This race will start and finish near 108th Street inside Riverside Park. You will head north to 116th Street before turning back down the footpath along the eastern edge of the park. You will then follow the path down to about 96th Street before turning north again and winding through the network of paths around the tennis courts and Dinosaur Park. The course is challenging, but offers plenty of downhills to make up for the uphills! Plus, the course offers terrific views of the Hudson River and Palisades Park across the way. Course Map
