Description

Race Start Time and Location:

We are extremely excited to bring you the most unique race in NYC, our Team Boat Relay/Duathlon! Not only will you get to run and bike across iconic Central Park, but with a teammate you’ll each row a boat through the Lake — passing Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge & more ! We’d like to thank the Central Park Boat House as well as the Central Park Conservatory for making the Boat Relay Race possible.

Here is what you can expect on race day: You may sign up as a solo competitor and compete the run/bike/run by yourself OR sign up with a teammate and one person will run, the other will bike, and then you BOTH row boats through the Lake.

At 7:30am the race will start by the Central Park Boat House parking lot. Both Run #1 and #2 are 2.2 miles each, an out/back format (only solo duathletes complete 2nd run) You will run along the east side and make a turn around point by 96th St. No significant elevation gain other than at the very start of the race, running up Cat Hill.  

The bike route consists of riding 2 loops around the Central Park Loop. As a result of the current construction in north section of the park we will NOT hit Harlem Hill. Instead, riders will loop around and to the west side through the 102nd Street Transverse. You are riding 5 miles per loop, 10 miles in total. The total elevation gain is about 250ft per loop with rolling hills to challenge riders throughout the park.

For athletes competing in the Team Boat Relay race, after you have completed the bike segment of the race, you and your partner will head to the Central Park Boat House dock, behind transition area. The Central Park Boat House staff will assist you boarding the boat. You will row through the Central Park Lake one loop and back to the far end of the boat dock crossing the yellow finishing buoys where your race will officially end (you and your partner do not have to sprint back to transition area).
