The Avon Walk T-5 Days

On Saturday we will walk 26.2 miles (a marathon). On Sunday, 13.1 miles. The google map below has the designated "cheering stations." So if you're in NYC, and want to cheer us on, please stop by. We're shooting for doing the full 26.2 miles on Saturday (fingers crossed). There's also a 13.1 mile option that day.

There are 18 cheer stations on Saturday (pink ribbons) and 9 for Sunday (horns).

Saturday Cheering Stations

Pier 1 (Mile 1.3)
W 70th Street 7:00am-8:00am (we should be here between 7:00 - 7:10am)

Riverside Skate Park (Mile 3.3)
Riverside Drive & 109th St. 7:30am-9:00am (we should be there about 7:45 - 8:00)

General Ulysses S. Grant National Memorial (Mile 4.2)
122nd St. & Riverside Drive West 7:30am-10:00am (we should be there between 8:05 - 8:15)

142nd and Riverside Drive (Mile 5.6)
7:15am-9:45am (8:35 - 8:45)

116th & Claremont (between Broadway & Riverside Drive) (Mile 7.3)
9:30am-11:00am (we should be here between 9:05 and 9:15)

Soldiers & Sailors Monument (Mile 8.8)
89th St. & Riverside Drive 9:00am-12:00pm (we should be here 9:35 - 9:55)

Lincoln Center (Mile 10.5)
10 Lincoln Center-Columbus Ave between 63rd & 64th 9:15am-1:45pm (10:10 - 10:25)
Though they're asking people to not crowd this one so they can be invited back next year, so the one below may be better. Though I wonder b/c I thought the distance from 64th street to 46 street along 9th Avenue was almost a mile, not a half-mile. Yeah, even Mapquest agrees that it's .84 miles.

46th St & 9th Avenue (Mile 10.9) 10:00am-1:45pm

29th St & 9th Avenue (Mile 13.1) 10:00am-2:00pm Half-way point (and very close to our hotel for the night! We should be here hopefully between 11:05 - 11:15.

Bleecker St & Mercer St (Mile 14.4) 10:00am-2:00pm I think lunch is at the 13.1 mile marker (not sure though), so from this point on it's hard to say when we'll arrive. Maybe 11:45 - 12:15pm

Pedestrian Entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge - Manhattan Side (Mile 15.7)
Corner of Centre Street & Park Row 11:00am-2:30pm (12:10 - 12:35)

Pedestrian Entrance - Manhattan Bridge - Brooklyn Side (Mile 17.8)
Jay Street & Sands St, Brooklyn, NY 11:30am-3:00pm (12:50 - 1:15)

Stuyvesant Square (Mile 20.5)
2nd Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets 12:00pm-3:30pm (for us, 1:50 - 2:15)

AMC LOEWS Movie Theatre in Kips Bay (Mile 21.5)
31st Street and 2nd Avenue 12:30pm-4:00pm (for us, 2:10 - 2:35)

United Nations Plaza (Mile 22) 45th Street & 1st Avenue 12:30pm-5:00pm (us, 2:25 - 2:50)
Again, I think the distance is off on this rest stop though.

East Side Middle School (Mile 23.8) 1458 York Ave between 77th & 78th Streets 1:00pm-5:30pm (us, 3:05 - 3:30)

Randall’s Island Footbridge Entrance (Mile 25.2)
103rd Street and East River Walking Path 12:30pm-5:30pm (us, 3:35 - 4:05)

Randall’s Island (Mile 26.2)
1 Randall‟s Island Park Peak viewing times: 1:30pm-6:15pm (us, 3:55 - 4:25)

Of course, these times are all estimates. I'll have my phone, so call if you want to know our location (of course, I'll have to stop walking to talk), so maybe, call Chris instead.

Tomorrow, I'll post Sundays rest stops.

I'll be virtually cheering for you from Hawaii, although during the first half of your walk I will be cheering in my sleep with the time change :)

OK, so most of us can't be there in person.
BUT, when you get to the halfway mark at 29th and 9th, look over at the corner of Billy Mark's.
And in you mind picture a huge ST GTG there holding up signs that say: "GO KIM!YOU'RE AWESOME"
