A chip-timed race through beautiful Central Park. The course covers the northern loop with the start at the intersection of East Drive and 102nd Street Crossing/Transverse. You begin by running over the northern most part of the loop and then going south on West Drive. You run until you get to Terrace Drive and then turn onto Terrace Drive and run to East Drive. The course returns to the start point and then crosses over the 102nd Street Crossing for your second and third loops. The finish is on the 102nd Street Crossing, the same location where packet pick up is located. Running only lanes are clearly marked. Run three loops. Leave your valuables with the race team at the finish line and then go to the start line, a 30 second jog.
