NOTE: Our route has changed since this run was originally posted.
This Sunday, we'll hit multiple parks in our 7-mile, multi-borough run starting in Long Island City and ending at Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO.
We will meet at 11:00am in Court Square Park in front of the old Courthouse in Long Island City (in Court Square, on Jackson Ave.). This area is convenient to transit with the the 7/E/G trains a block away and the N/F/R not far off in the Queens Plaza area. Parking should also be relatively easy to find.
Our run will take us through Gantry State Park, along the water in LIC, over the Pulaski Bridge to Greenpoint, Brooklyn as we work our way through Williamsburg to Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO. When we reach DUMBO, we will check out Smorgasburg (http://www.brooklynflea.com/markets/smorgasburg-dumbo/
), which opens this weekend (it includes 75-80 vendors of prepared and packaged foods and related items). Even if food vendors are not your thing, Brooklyn Bridge Park is fantastic. We may also meander around DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights, depending upon the whim of the group. We will be near multiple subways and buses that can take you wherever and whenever you wish to go.
We won't set a minimum pace for this run, but will be aiming for a 10 min/mile. Please be sure that you can run a full 7 miles without stopping. If you would expect to run a LOT slower than a 10 min/mile over this distance, please consider signing up for a different outing. This is for your safety and shows consideration for others in the group.
If you would like to add about 1.8 miles to your run, you are welcome to join your organizer who will be running from Woodside to Court Square - please comment or message him directly to coordinate. This sub-group will leave Woodside by around 10:40am.
