The 2.2 mile run starts on East Drive at 74th Street, goes north to a turn around point at 96th Street (on East Drive) and back along the same route to the transition area. The turn point is indicated by a "U-Turn" sign affixed to the top of a large cone. Runners must stay to the left side of the runner's lane (both out and back), as indicated by the "Runners Stay Left" signs affixed to cones along the run course.
The bike course (12 mi.) consists of two (6 mile) loops of Central Park in a counter-clockwise direction. Bikers must stay in the middle and right lanes at ALL times and may not enter the runners (left) lane under ANY circumstances!
