About Long Runs Runs

Long Runs and Steady Runs are designed for steady paces of 11 minute miles or faster with limited stops to provide time for water, bathrooms and very special landmarks and photo opportunities.

Park to Park


Central Park to Prospect Park and all the most beautiful neighborhoods, parks and unexpected treasures between. A 4 to 16 mile adventure through Manhattan, Queens and, especially Brooklyn, that will change your view of New York, forever.  



 Victorian Brooklyn is a collection of neighborhoods south of Prospect Park built at the beginning of the last century.  Practically every home is a spacious masterpiece of romantic, late Victorian architecture.   Flat, shady and splendiferous, this secret corner of our city is perfect for a cool summer run.  



Some people carp that New York neighborhoods are in decline.  Astoria is Exhibit "A" for the thriving mosaic of cultures, landmarks, parks and communities woven throughout our thriving Boroughs.

Long Island City - Capital of Queens


Amazon didn't move in, but LIC still remains the fastest growing neighborhood in New York!  Yes, Long Island City really was the capital of Queens!



Smack in the middle of New York lies a unique village that grew up largely isolated from the rest of the City.  Today, it might be New York's most rapidly changing neighborhood.

Immigration Celebration!


They say that over 800 languages are spoken in New York City. From Central Park to Flushing, Queens, this run celebrates the peoples of the world living together in peace right here in NYC. 

Historic South Bronx

City Island & Pelham Bay Park

Staten Island

Water Works


 New York's greatest achievement? Water. The Croton Reservoir System, completed 15 years before the construction of Central Park even began, transformed New York's quality of life in New York. From Columbus Circle to Highgate Bridge, this Run visits the grand monuments built to celebrate abundant water in New York.
