Our full marathon course: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1638076430

Our full course is Marathon (close enough for a fatass) length. We are challenging our friends to run our full route. You will get bragging rights, and a FABULOUS key award for placing! You will have a good shot at a course PR, but you will probably NOT have your PR for a marathon (Unless it's your first.)

You will climb 2,621' of elevation, some very steep hills.
You will have amazing views of Manhattan, Jersey City's fab Bear Mural, the Weehauken Cliffs (Hamilton duel fame) and turning around in James Braddock Park (Cinderella Man fame.).

The course records are below. Both were set on Dec 3, 2017.

Men: Reynaldo Martinez; 3:56:12

Women: Noriko Charnley; 4:49:07

Our course will be marked, but we recommened you download our map and our turn by turn directions.

Since we are a FATASS we will have limited aid - However there are Tiger Mart convenience stores listed in our directions, and there are gas stations along the route. We will also do our best to have confusing turns manned by volunteers.

Our course has lots and lots of turns. We need you to be super careful when crossing the roads, some are one way, and a lot are busy, so please obey the traffic signals. Be aware you will NOT make the full course without getting stuck at at least one light!

We will have a sign in before the race - You will get a number and sign a waiver.

We will have an after party at Healy's Tavern on Newark Avenue - Details to follow.

WE WILL HAVE FUN!

We have to restrict our numbers so if you do accept our invite and change your mind, please let us know.
