NYC Marathon Long Run Series
Are you planning to run this years New York City Marathon but dread those loooong, solitary training runs that await you? Trust us; you're not alone if you anticipate those extra long runs with trepidation and uncertainty. In response to customer feedback of this nature we've developed a series of Long Run Series scheduled specifically toward the NYC Marathon.
Starting at eight weeks out with our first long run we will meet every other week for a series of long runs of 18, 20, and 20 miles, all of which will be in Central Park. We'll round out the series the week before the race as we do the last 8-miles of the actual race course. This last 8-mile run will be staff supported with nutrition along the course.
Program registration does not include race entry into the NYC Marathon. **While we are here to help you with your longest training runs these runs alone will not adequately prepare you for the marathon. Participants MUST be able to run 16 miles continuously at an 11 minute per mile pace or lower by our first long run on September 14th.
We will have different pace "range" groups and the schedule is as follows:
- September 14th - 18 miles
- September 28th - 20 miles
- October 12th - 20 miles
- October 26th - last 8 miles of the race course (staff supported race course)
All Long Run Series participants will be provided with a complimentary technical running t-shirt and are also invited to participate in the following program exclusive events:
- "Pre-Race Lecture with Jonathan Cane" This covers everything you need to know and can expect on race day, Tuesday, October 29th at the UWS Community Space
Fee: $65 - Program registration does not include race registration
Date/Time: First long run is September 14th and all runs will begin at 7:15am. The class will meet rain or shine.

Where: Most runs will meet in Central Park just inside the West 72nd Street entrance near the Daniel Webster statue OR at JackRabbit UWS store also on West 72nd between Columbus & Broadway.
