The 5th Annual Shoes to Brews Aqueduct Run will take place on Sunday, December 1st. This is a casual, fun run on a mostly flat route with some road but mainly on non-technical trail. The run is 13 miles long with an option to run 6 depending on where you want to start on the Aqueduct Trail.
For those running 13 miles, we’ll meet at the Philipse Manor train station at 9:20 am on the east side of the tracks. The route starts on the streets of Sleepy Hollow up the big hill to the high school. Once at the school, we’ll follow the Aqueduct Trail to Yonkers for lunch and/or beer(s) at the Yonkers Brewery. Then we’ll take the train back to Philipse Manor.
There are a couple tricky sections on the streets in Tarrytown, including crossing 87, but once passed, the trail is very easy to follow. In Yonkers, follow N Broadway then make a right and head towards the river. The brewery is a block south of the train station. This is the 13 mile route:
The 6 mile run begins at the Dobbs Ferry train station. A short walk brings you to the Aqueduct Trail. Follow the trail to Yonkers, then run on the roads to the Brewery.
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.
