Parking

There are several metro north parking lots near the start/finish of the course. Check out this map for parking lots nearby - all commuter parking lots are free on Saturday. You may park in these lots on Saturdays for free. Do NOT park on Harmon Ave between Highbrook and the train station- you will cause "confusion and delay" among your fellow runners.


Public Transportation

If you are traveling from NYC to Pelham, we suggest you consider the Metro North RR from Grand Central Terminal or 125th Street Station.

You'll take the Stamford line, Harlem > Fordham > Mt. Vernon East > Pelham. Walk under the RR overpass and you'll see the race start at 20 Fifth Avenue Pelham

You can check the Metro North schedule here.  Please make sure to enter November 25th as the date on this form. Note: MNRR may be running on HOLIDAY SCHEDULE

There will be baggage drop at the start / finish line, in Daronco Town House.


There will be porta potties available at the start/finish in the parking lot behind the Daronco town house (at the intersection of Harmon Place and Harmon Avenue). A restroom in the Daronco townhouse will also be available. 

Toilets


Yes, you may switch your registration from the 10K to the Half (or vice versa). To do this, please email us in advance or make the request at check-in on race day.

Time Limit

There's no official time limit for the race and the course is on open roads. However, after 3 hours the finish line will be broken down and the volunteers / course marshals will finish their duties.


Water / Aid Stations

There will be six water stations on the half marathon course at approximately two mile intervals. The last three stations will provide sport drink as well as water. 


Not Allowed

Dogs -  although we personally  love them and think everyone should run with a dog, we unfortunately can't accomodate them on this course.

Jogger strollers / roller blades / other wheeled devices are also not allowed.


Post Race

At the finish line there will be water, sports drink and fruit generously provided by DeCiccio & Sons, and hot chocolate & coffee provided by JCafe.

The awards ceremony will be held in the Daronco Town House at 9:30am for the 10K and 10am for the Half Marathon.

After the awards ceremony, come on over to the post-race party across the street starting at 10am.
