Races take place on alternating Wednesday evenings in Prospect Park.
We will be starting 2 waves of runners at 7 and 7:15 pm. You may select the wave you wish to be in when you register. We know this doesn’t match with tradition* but we also anticipate modifying the wave start as government regulations change over the summer.
Races will take place rain or shine. Any decision to cancel due to dangerous weather conditions will be announced in the afternoon the day of the race, and will be messaged through email, PPTC social media, and updates on this website.
Races will start on East Drive, just north of LeFrak Center at Lakeside, and end on the East Drive at Lakeside Center. At Bluestone Cafe at Lakeside, you will find the following amenities:
Walkers are welcome, but due to liability reasons, we cannot allow strollers or pets. We recommend signing up for the 6:45 pm wave if possible.
