Tortoise and the Hare at Van Cortland Park
Held at Van Cortland Park, in the Bronx, the NYRR Henry Isola Cross Country Classic offers plenty of room for runners of all ages and abilities. The NYRR is organizing the event, which is a distance of 4 miles. The race begins at 11:30 A.M., and race day registration is available, at the venue, beginning at 10:00.
This is a great opportunity for those participating in the 9+1 program, for next year’s NYC Marathon, to run a scored qualifier, that does not take place in Central Park. The race starts near the statue of the Tortoise and the Hare, in Van Cortland Park.
The course for this race contains a lot of diverse terrain, including trails and hills. An NYRR Course Map can be found here.
More details about the race, including entry fees, directions to the event, and peripheral race day activities can be found on the NYRR Website, here.
