If you are registered for the Loop (April 21st, 2013), look to get into or create a carpool!
Carpooling to the Loop is a time honored tradition and helps everyone out in many ways:
- Less gas burned = save money.
- Fewer cars on the road = eases bottlenecks coming into the park.
- Fewer cars in the parking lot = easier and quicker parking on race day.
- Less money spent on parking = more money to donate to charity.
If you are signed up solo and don’t know of anyone to carpool with, leave a comment below or on Facebook. Last year we got a few people together just through comments on this website. And make a new friend in the bargain! Just make sure you bring a plastic bag, a change of clothes & shoes, and towel so you don’t mess up your friend’s car.
If you are coming from NYC on the train (Metro-North Harlem line – Katonah Station is best option) you can either take a cab from the station or leave a comment below looking for a ride or cab share. [Katonah Taxi 914-232-5772]
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.
