4 for Fahy
Thursday, May 25th, 2017 10:30 AMFDNY is excited to announce FDNY Deputy Chief Michael Fahy's Memorial Run, 4 for Fahy. The race will take place on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at 10:30 AM in Van Cortlandt Park. Some useful info on getting to the start. FDNY will have a bag check area available at registration. The 242nd St. Subway stop on the #1 line is also just a short distance west of the start, on Broadway. Start on the grass, at the southwest corner of the parade ground, ("The Flats"). Head east on the grass, passing the Van Cortlandt Mansion along the southern edge of The Flats before getting on the path and turning left/north. Continue on path and turn right into the woods. Ascend the trail as you continue north. Turn right onto the footbridge that passes over the Henry Hudson Parkway. Continue straight, going around the small roundabout in front of the bathrooms. Head south and turn right after passing over the Parkway again. Enjoy a nice downhill section before re-joining the path around The Flats. Continue on this path all the way around again to complete the first of two loops. The 2 mile mark is right in front of the Van Cortlandt Nature Center. Finish just off the path beyond this mark upon completion of 2nd full loop.
