    I lived in the Bronx for 8 years so I really wanted to do this race and was excited it fit in my schedule this year. It also worked great with the Hamptons half marathon the day before for a double race weekend. As I said it that review I stayed in a hotel in Queens which was the most convenient location for both races. I had plans in Manhattan after the race in the Hamptons so I got my packet at the NYRR center on Saturday but you could also get packet the day of the race. Packet pick-up was easy at the center and also included a nice red tech T-shirt with the race logo. On Sunday morning I took a cab to the race since I wasn’t sure how parking was going to be and public transportation would take over an hour and I was going to a Mets game in the afternoon so it was easier to keep my car in Queens. Since I already picked up my packet it was very stress free just being dropped off. This is a huge race with over 10,000 runners. There are long porta potty lines which I expected so I went early. You are assigned corral based on pace. I was in the last corral since I expected to be slow. It took about 20 to 30 minutes for everyone to go through the corral but everything seemed organized. I knew this was going to be a very slow race for me. I definitely pushed myself as hard as possible yesterday and had very little gas left in the tank. I planned to walk most of this race but as with other NYRR there are a ton of back of the packers so even at a 15 min/mile mostly walking pace there is high energy and tons of people around. The course is mostly an out and back down grand concourse with a loop through a park at the turnaround point. Grand Concourse is very representative of the vibe of the Bronx and it was fun to run through where I lived for so long. I would have liked to have passed by a few of my favorite spots in the Bronx like my college and the Bronx zoo as opposed to just an out and back on the same street but I understand logistically why this race had to be this way. There were a medium amount of spectators and the ones there were very enthusiastic. The course is rolling hills. Nothing too steep but some of the inclines are rather long. There were mile markers and plenty of aid stations with water and gatorade. The finish goes a bit past the start and ends at Yankee stadium. My finishing time was really slow as expected but I had no issues finishing the race and was expecting to be slow after how hard I pushed myself the day before. There is a long finish shoot where you get your medal and a bag of recovery food. I like that the medal has Bronx very large on it and the ribbon has the names of multiple important Bronx landmarks. It is convenient that you end near the subway station. I then took the train to Manhattan for lunch and then to Queens to see the Mets. This was a great race and a really fun weekend. I hope it works out that I can do this race again.

    Race day weather was perfect. Couldn’t ask for better conditions. The course is basically rolling hills, out and back on the Grand Concourse with a turn-around on the Mosholu Parkway.

    Roads were definitely in better condition this year than 2 years ago. Getting to the start is very easy with multiple parking options in the area and a subway stop right by race day central.

    I didn’t notice photographers along the course as in 2019, but I’m assuming that’s a COVID thing.

    This was a nice break from half marathons. Not having to run that last 5k was a welcome change!

    The race is super easy to get to via public transport on either Metro North to Yankee Stadium-153rd st or on the 4 or D train to 161st. I took Metro North to Harlem 125th St, then transferred to the 4 to 161. This puts you out basically right in the finish area where the bag check, packet pickup, and great views of Yankee Stadium can be found.

    I picked up my packet race morning which was very easy and shirts were picked up at the end of the race so I didn’t have to run with it. The race start is 165th St which was not a long walk at all from packet pickup.

    The weather this year was gorgeous. A little warm, but that was mostly the sun. The breeze was nice and cool and the course is mostly shaded. I swear the first 3.5 miles or so were almost entirely up an incline, miles 3.5-5 were flat, and 5 to almost the finish were a mix of decline and incline, but the fina. quarter mile or so to the finish is all downhill.

    In usually NYRR style, finishers had a bit of a walk from the finish line back out to where bag check was and there were food trucks you could purchase food from, but the lines were insane. I just stuck with the goodies in the finisher bags that were handed out (the usual water, gatorade, apple, pretzels, and a delicious Honey Stinger bar).

    The best part? Race photos are free!

    Rolling hills, water and Gatorade every mile, race is a go-out/ turn around/ come back format with a 2 mile loop at the turnaround. Band playing around miles 2&7 and a DJ around miles 3&5. You get a medal at the end and a nice technical tshirt.

    The Bronx 10 Miler is an awesome race. It starts on the Grand Concourse near Yankee Stadium. The course goes out the Grand Concourse, does a couple loops around a couple areas, then back down the Concourse. This course is tougher than it looks. There is a lot of rolling grades, on the concourse, it’s either up or down, never flat. Great finish atmosphere. They always have a great shirt design if you like shirts. One of my favorite races in the NYRR Borough Series.
