Description

THE RACE

In the great traditions of Miracle on 34th Street, green-bean casserole, and pumpkin-spiced everything, start your holiday season with a quick jaunt around New York’s most adorable island. Run hard and we guarantee you’ll feel better about breaking out those elastic-waist pants later in the week for the culinary onslaught. Roosevelt island is the perfect spot for river views, crisp autumn air, gently falling orange and yellow leaves, and for celebrating the start of the holiday season with a few hundred fellow New York runners.
