For the past two years I ran the NYRR Bronx 10-Mile race as a part of a long training run. It’s been one of my favorite ways to mix up my long run route. This year, I’ve stuck to my word and I am not running a marathon (admittedly, I broke down and signed up for a marathon, but I am NOT actually running it after all).
If you are running the New York City Marathon and are running the Bronx-10 as a part of the long run, you’ll easily be able to incorporate parts of the NYCM into your long run route.
This route follows mile 16 – 20 of the marathon route and is a great way to run miles before the race. (Click the top corner of the map to get the full details of the run)
This route follows miles 20.5 – 26.2 of the marathon route and is a great route to run right after you cross the finish line in the Bronx. You’ll get to experience the incline that runs from 110th street to 90th street on Fifth Avenue. Click the top corner of the map to get the full details of the run)
Both of these routes are easy to follow and fun to run!
