Event Details

Come hear our panel of experts share their experiences running the New York City Marathon.  This great event at JackRabbit will leave you with tons of tips and brimming with confidence for November 3.  In addition to providing us with space and hosting this event, our friends at JackRabbit will also be hosting a bagel breakfast for us before the talk.  

We are planning to do an optional 7 mile run before the event and this will leave the JackRabbit store at 9am (best to arrive a few minutes early, although not as early as you will need to be on November 3).  You can leave a bag or clothing at JackRabbit before the run (please drop your bag in the event room rather than the lockers), so you have something different or warm to wear during the talk.  Alternatively, don't drop off any clothes at JackRabbit and sit beside someone who didn't do the run during the event - your sweaty clothes and "runner fresh" scent will show them you mean business and that they should let you cut the line for the porta potties on November 3...  A picture of the route is posted below and we will break up into pace groups.  Remember, you are in taper/rest mode now, so don't race this run - you won't get any prize money for finishing first, so don't treat it like the marathon.    

Route for the run (leaving at 9am):  The route will start from the JackRabbit store, head up the west side of the park to the top of the park and then over to 5th avenue.  You then run the last 3 or so miles of the marathon course and finish around Tavern on the Green.  If you want the complete marathon test experience, then walk from Tavern on the Green back to 72nd st or you can just jog up and get a better seat for the event.  Even more importantly, you should figure out your marathon finish line celebration ahead of time and try it out as your pass Tavern on the Green (don't worry about the odd looks from strangers and other runners).  You will have plenty time after the run to get settled and ready for the talk, so don't push the pace.  Talk to people on the run and make some new friends.    Here is a map of the route:
