    I’ve always wanted to run this race, but have never been able to as I’ve always had to work on Saturdays. Luckily, my new job gives me Saturdays off! The weather this year was gorgeous with the smoke from the Canadian wildfires clearing out just in time so that the race could go on. Race day central was near the Naumburg Bandshell, where NYRR often has it set up for spring races. Unfortunately, this meant a 1 mile trek to the start. I could’ve taken the C train, but it was such a nice day that I decided to make the walk.

    The race course is mainly in Central Park, with the first mile or so being down West 5th Ave. There were a record number of runners this year, so the course was pretty congested with a couple of bottlenecks along the way. I wouldn’t, thus, necessarily call this one a PR race. Thankfully, the course doesn’t involve Harlem Hill, but you do go up the other hills in the park.

    The finish was the most congested of all. Flowers and medals are given to finishers, but the flowers were only on one side, whereas medals were on both, so I missed out on getting a flower. Likewise, the recovery bags were only one one side so it was a madhouse to get one. The medal is cute, the shirt is good quality (but unfortunately white). Shirts are picked up after the race (if you picked up your bib on race day), so you’ve got to be fast if you want a smaller size. Lucky for me, the only sizes left were L and XL.

    I would definitely run this one again as it was a blast, but I think some changes do need to be made to the post finish medals/flowers/bags so hopefully that’s done next year.

    In my opinion New York Road Runners put on the best racing events hands down. There were a couple hills on this year’s course going through the park. Pro runners like Keira D’Amato and Alexi Pappas were on hand to welcome runners at the finish line and to take photos with fans.

    An all women’s 10k with a substantial number of walkers and walk/run participants. Nice singlet and medal but there was no XS singlets which is what I needed. Very hot morning out–there should have been water tables at every mile instead of every other mile (which made the tables super congested when you got to one).
