The 3rd Annual Shoes to Brews Aqueduct Run takes place Sunday, November 26th this year!! This is a casual, fun run on a mostly flat route with some road but mainly on non-technical trail. There are 3, 6, 13, 20+, and 30+ mile options depending on where you want to us on the Aqueduct Trail.
For those running 13 miles, we’ll meet at the store at 8:30 am, take the train to Philipse Manor (train leaves at 9 am so please arrive no later than 8:45), run down the Aqueduct Trail to the Yonkers Brewery, have lunch and/or beer(s), then take the train back. You can also meet us at the Philipse Manor train station at 9:20.
If you’d prefer to run a shorter distance, there are meeting points for a 6 mile and 3 mile run (details below). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for info about the 20+ or 30+ mile options.
Pace will vary from 8 to 11 min/mile. The 13 mile route starts at the Philipse Manor train station and follows roads up a big hill to Sleepy Hollow High School. Once around the school, we’ll follow the Aqueduct Trail to Yonkers.
There are a couple tricky sections on the street in Tarrytown, including crossing 87, but once passed, the trail is very easy to follow. In Yonkers, we’ll follow N Broadway then make a right on Main St to reach the Brewery. This is the 13 mile route:
The 6 mile run begins at the Dobbs Ferry train station. The 3 mile run begins at Greystone train station. A short walk from both brings you to the Aquaduct Trail. Follow the trail to Yonkers, then run on the roads to the Brewery.
This is a no-runner-left-behind event – we’ll have runners who know the route in the front, middle, and rear. That being said, it is a point-to-point route, so please be mindful that there might not be an easy way to abandon the run. If you find yourself alone and/or lost, stop and wait until you find someone who knows the route.
This event is free; however, by signing up we can let Yonkers Brewery know roughly how many runners to expect.
