    This race used to be in August, but was moved to February. Race day packet pickup was easy as was bag check.

    The race started about West 63rd and finished about East 72nd. The course was very congested, especially since many people started in a corral they didn’t belong in and created obstacles to go around. It didn’t really thin out until after the 5k mark. I have to say, though, it was nice to only do the hills once for a change as the only part of the park you run twice is the flatter southern portion.

    So here comes the main complaint…the race shirts were really nice in their design this year. For a race that doesn’t offer a medal, you’d think NYRR would pay close attention to the sizes people list upon registering. I’ve never had this issue in the past (since a women’s large is effectively a medium which is the most popular size) but they had no reasonable sizes left. The only women’s sizes were medium (read: small) and 2XL or they had men’s large and up. So my shirt would fit two of me. I am not happy. That means plenty of runners were picking up shirts they didn’t put down the size for. NYRR definitely needs a better system. NYCRuns puts the size you asked for upon registering on your bib and you can’t exchange it until after the race. NYRR needs to do something similar. Instead of just having a “swag” tag on your bib for your shirt, it needs to include the size to prevent people from messing up the ordering and depriving runners of a shirt they, essentially, paid for.
