Registration Is Now Open!

Registration for Paine to Pain 2009 is now open!  As you can see from the main page, we’re starting with a gunshot on October 4th. To say we are excited is an understatement.

Based on the enthusiastic reviews last year when we put this race on with short notice, we think there’s a pretty good chance we will sell out this year. So our suggestion is to register early, which also saves you 10 bucks. Our best case scenario is that we are sold out well in advance and therefore don’t have to spend time with late registration issues when we would rather be marking the trail and getting the race ready.

We will use this blog for periodic updates, so if you have an RSS feed, we suggest you use it. If you don’t have an RSS feed, we suggest you learn, because it is ridiculously easy. You’ll have updated information pushed to your RSS feed without having to actually visit the site looking for updates.

And if you know folks who want to volunteer, either on race day or as part of the organizational effort, please let me know. You can email me at Eric [at] TurkewitzLaw [dot] com.

  4. We are open and approaching 25% full already, and still over three months to go.

  6. Hi,
    I’m spending some time in Manhattan during October and would like to participate. Is it possible to travel to the race by public transportation on race day?
    How long will it take me to get there?
    I don’t know the area since I live Israel, but it sounds like the ultimate off-road experience.

    Thank you!

    Roni Arbel,
    Israel

  8. Travel from Manhattan is easy. Take the 7:37 train out of Grand Central (New Haven line) to New Rochelle, which will arrive at 8:08. From there you can catch a taxi to the start for about $7. Look for other runners to share a cab with as we expect about 30 people from NYC.

    To find the taxis: Go up the stairs to the bridge in the middle of the platform. You will find one taxi stand to your left. A second one is found if you cross the bridge, go down the stairs and go through the station house.

    Return trains are at 11:33 and 12:33. The awards ceremony will start about 11:30.
