Hudson River Run Tour

Saturday 31st March 2018

Whitehall Terminal/Staten Island Ferry: 4 Whitehall St., New York, United States

Distance running, 5 Mile


Description

Tour Summary:

The Hudson River is one of New York’s favorite places to enjoy many outdoor activities such as running, biking, kayaking, along with sunbathing, picnicking, even enjoying a nice glass of wine while watching the sunset. In this run tour you will see expansive views of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline. Winding treelined paths will take you past several newly constructed piers along side remains of the original wooden piers and even railway gantries that were used for transferring railcars from cargo ferries. This tour will allow for a quality workout combined with a view of the city that visitors rarely see.

We will meet in the front of Whitehall Terminal/Staten Island Ferry right across from the #1 subway entrance and will finish at the corner of 14th Street and 8th Avenue right near the A,C,E subway entrance.

This is not a race but a group running tour that will be led by a licensed NYC sightseeing guide who is also a certified running coach. To insure no one is left behind and that all can hear the guide we will run at an easy, conversation pace. We will make periodically stops to view and discuss notable points of interest throughout the tour. You should be able to comfortably run 5 miles for this tour. The duration of the tour is up to 90 minutes. We recommend bringing very little on the tour. As always, it's important to stay hydrated during a run, so please bring a small bottle of water. We will begin our tour right at the scheduled start time, however if you are running late please be sure to email or phone us no later than 15 minutes prior to the start.
