Event details and schedule

Bib Pickup:

The race will be starting promptly at 8am.  Bib pickup will be held on race morning right at the starting line on the American Veterans Memorial Pier from 6:30am-7:30am.  Please do not wait until the last minute so that we can be sure we start the race on time.  Come early, get your race day materials and have plenty of time for your pre race warm ups and routines.  There will also be a baggage check nearby for your belongings.  


The race start/finish as well as registration will all be held at the American Veterans Memorial Pier at 6901 Shore Road.  There will be on-street parking on Shore Road and its adjoining streets.  You can also take the R Train to the Bay Ridge Ave station located at Bay Ridge Ave and 4th Ave and walk west -- toward 3rd Ave -- until you reach the water.  It’s about a 0.6 mile walk to the pier.  Please leave yourself plenty of time to arrive!  The R train does not run from White Hall to Court Street anymore so plan accordingly.  


The Tavern Cup 13.1 will be a spectator friendly multi-loop course along one of NYC’s finest waterfronts.  You will begin with quick 1 mile out and back before completing three 4-mile loops of the Shore Road Promenade in Bay Ridge.  You will have fluid stations roughly every mile so there is plenty of opportunity to stay hydrated. The finish line will be back at the American Veterans Memorial Pier where you can collect your FINISHER MEDALS and bask in your accomplishments – It is impossible to get lost.  Due to heat considerations the course will only be open for 3 hours.     


After you all kick butt in the half marathon we will provide bagels, chips, cookies and water at the finish line, but for those looking to CELEBRATE their new PRs please join us at Yellow Hook Grille immediately following the race.  Yellow Hook Grille -- 7003 3rd Ave -- is conveniently located between the finish line and the subway.  There will be drink specials.  Come for the race, but stay for the FUN.    

Thanks for choosing Trimara Sports and we look forward to racing with you at the 10th annual Tavern Cup.
