This is the extension of our run over the George Washington Bridge.
Just a quick guide to how to add another 2-3 miles to your run in New Jersey without getting run over.
You will have some challenging hills on the way back, but that shouldn’t be a surprise – what goes down must come up (at least in running world).
Here is the map:
Once you come over the GWB, you take the first left possible onto Hudson Terrace.
Skip the first entrance to Palisades Park and head downhill to the next entrance.
Taking a left into the park will take you East and then North back under the bridge.
It’s downhill most of the way, so enjoy the free speed!
Here’s a map of the park also:
After about 3/4 of a mile, you’ll have reached the bottom, where you have vending machines, bathroom, including water, even in the winter!
That’s a nice perk.
You can extend the run, as I show you, by cutting back and running again under the bridge to the South on a little footpath, until it ends.
You’ll be running with only the lapping of the Hudson’s waves as company, right on the river’s edge.
It’s a lovely morning thing to do!
The fun will come on the way back, when you get your hill training!!
There are a couple of obvious places to stop, but once you get up that last hill, the GWB will never seem that hard again!
Happy Running – Scott
