Route description
Route description

Start on "The Flats," a wide field bordering Broadway, and head south. Turn left/east to pass the Van Cortlandt Mansion along the southern edge of The Flats, then take another left to head north toward the woods at the Cow Path entrance. Follow the trail as you continue north.

Continue on the trail as it runs parallel to the Henry Hudson Parkway, and make the right turn toward the Back Hills as you reach the bridge that crosses over the Parkway.

Complete the Back Hills loop, then turn right after crossing back over the bridge to head toward The Flats. Exit the woods and proceed to complete two more full loops around The Flats and Back Hills.

After your third Back Hills loop, bear right as you exit the woods. From there, you'll have about three-quarters of a mile to go, and the finish is along Broadway just beyond the Tortoise and Hare statue.

Logistics and schedule

Bag check, also located near the Tortoise and Hare statue, will be available from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.
