Carpooling – Fuel Efficiency and Fun!

Carpooling to the Loop is a time honored tradition and helps everyone out in many ways:

  • Less gas burned = Happy Earth Day!
  • Fewer cars on the road = eases bottlenecks coming into the park.
  • Fewer cars in the parking lot = easier and quicker parking on race day.
  • More fun in the car before and after the Loop = Just make sure you bring a change of clothes and towel so you don’t mess up your friend’s car!
  • Less money spent on parking = more money to donate to charity. (Did you know the $10 per car park entry fee has been included with the race registration fee since 2008? To ease entry, a park employee keeps a count of cars and the Loop organizers write the park a check afterwards.)

If you are signed up solo and don’t know of anyone to carpool with, leave a comment below. Last year we got a few people together just through comments on this website.

If you are coming from NYC on the train (Metro-North Harlem line is best option) you can either take a cab from the station (Katonah station is closest) or leave a comment below looking for a ride or cab share.

The New York Trail and Ultrarunning Meetup group got a bunch of folks together for last year’s Loop. Join up there and post a note asking about a ride.

  1. i live in Katonah, and would be happy to ferry 5 or 6 folks over who come up on the train.Looks like the 6:30 train from GCT arrives at Katonah at 7:51. I can meet you at the station, on the town side of the tracks, not the parking lot side. Let me know.
