NYRR Open Run at Inwood Hill Park (Saturdays)

Course: 2x ~1.25 mile loop around Inwood Hill Park

  • NYRR started a new initiative where they are coordinating volunteers to hold free weekly runs in NYC neighborhoods
  • April 2nd was the first run/walk at Inwood; check-in started at 8:45 and the run started at 9
  • Surprised by the relatively large turnout, as it was raining and miserably cold; they also timed the race manually, which I wasn’t expecting
  • Was glad I went, as were the two people I dragged with me; time will tell whether it will be an event that is sustainable in the long term
