View Over Central Park
|Spring in Manhattan is a runner’s paradise. The streets are abuzz with talk of the New York City Marathon, The Hamptons, and getting outside. Central Park awakens from its winter hibernation and the temperatures are perfect. Come explore New York as only the New Yorkers know it. Central Park, 5th Avenue, Riverside Drive, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Greenwich Village. Explore Manhattan as it was meant to be explored, on foot.
Arrive by noon on the Upper West Side, as we get set for a weekend of running and exploring in the Big Apple. Come dressed ready to go as we have a quick orientation lunch and then take off on our first run. Shoot up the West Side of Manhattan on Riverside Drive and catch a glimpse of the George Washington Bridge in front of you, the Hudson to one side and the buildings of NYC to your right. Finish off the day with pasta at one of the city’s finest Italian hideaways.
Today’s run will take us through downtown Manhattan around the “tip” and over the famous Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards relax in Battery Park where you can view the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in the distance. Shop in SoHo and explore Greenwich Village before heading back uptown. Enjoy an afternoon stretch with the Wharton Performance Team in Central Park, before dinner.
Spend the day in Manhattan’s running haven, Central Park. Our running specialists prepare a special run duplicating the last 10 miles of the NYC Marathon Course, which finishes up in front of Tavern On The Green. Join the natives as we take in a lunch spread on the Great Lawn. Spend the rest of the day as we walk down through Columbus Circle, 5th Avenue, Madison Avenue and Rockefeller Center. Take in a late afternoon jog or training session before dining in the hip Meat Packing District.
Grab some energy food to get the day started before our morning run, a trip to the outer burroughs and New Jersey. Explore the beautiful Palisades and its over 1000 ft. cliffs while gazing down over all of Manhattan Island. End the trip with Sunday Brunch and the New York Times
