If you are registered for the Loop (April 26, 2015), look to get into or create a loop carpool!
Did you know the regular $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 based on the number of cars entering.
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. The last few years we got a few people together just through comments on this website and facebook. Plus you can make a new friend or two in the bargain!
However you arrive, make sure you bring a plastic bag, a change of clothes & shoes, and towel so you don’t mess up your new 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 on facebook or below looking for a ride or cab share. [Katonah Taxi 914-232-5772]

I am driving from the Bronx to the race tomorrow. I have space for passengers. Let me know if there’s anyone who needs a ride.
