Long Runs, Grete 10K, All on Saturday!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week and is ready to crank up the miles this weekend!

We have three opportunities for you to get your runs in on Saturday and we are pretty sure that no matter where you are in the 5 boroughs, you will be able to get to us somewhere along the way! Read ahead to find out about the three opportunities!

*STATEN ISLAND HALF MARATHON TRIAL RUN – LED BY LISSETTE*STATEN ISALND HALF PIC

One of our members Lissette is a resident of Staten Island and has been looking forward to leading this trial run. She knows the course and is ready to lead our members thru the course so that they can run the race with confidence next week!

She has also arranged for lockers at a new gym called “Goal Mine”. For $20 you can store your items in a locker there, shower and use the sauna after the trial run. The gym also has a cafe inside if you want to get a bite to eat after.

Goal Mine is close to the start of the SI Half marathon course. Meet up is at 8am in front of Goal Mine. If you don’t want to use Goal Mine then just come over and meet up with the runners to run the SI half course!

These folks did 15 a couple of weeks back – now they are ready for 18 miles!

She led a 15 miler a couple of weeks ago and she is at again on Saturday. This time she is going for 18 miles and wants you to join her! Starting in Bayridge Brooklyn, this run will go up 4th avenue and mirror as much of the NYC Marathon course as possible into Greenpoint, over the Pulaski Bridge and over the 59th street bridge into Manhattan. Once in Manhattan they will head up 1st avenue just like the marathon does and end around 96th street. The end goal is 18 miles but you can do as many as you need to! Bring some cash and a metro card with you in case you want to jump into a store along the way of feel like breaking away at any time!
