Come join us on Saturday, June 3rd at 8:15AM to celebrate 40 years with the Broadway Ultra Society (BUS) Anniversary Run. There will be two races: a 40K and a 40 Mile road run. You DO NOT have to declare what distance you are running. All participants, even eventual 40-Mile finishers, will receive an official time & place in the "40K". There also will be an "added" recording of times and places at the marathon (26.2 mile) location (about a mile & 1/2 further from the 40K mark on the course loop). There only will be one "official" start.
Local time: 8:36 AM
The Start/Finish area will be at the Alley Pond Park "Springfield" section, located on 76th Avenue just east of Springfield Blvd. in Queens, NY. The race loop is a 3.08-mile circuit on paved (macadam) park paths. The loop can be challenging with series of roller coaster inclines and declines in a park and woodsy surroundings. Each loop is about 70% shady. The race objectives: 40K - complete 8 loops; 40 miles - complete 13 loops; "marathon" - complete 8 loops plus 1.58 miles. TIME LIMITS: 8 Hours for 40K and marathon; 9 hours & 45 minutes for 40 Miles. The latter time limit will be administered. There will be 3 AID stations per loop providing water, Gatorade, defizzed cola & food snacks. Finish Line Station will also have medical supplies.
