First Days of Spring

Week of March 20-26


On Sunday, the United Airlines NYC Half ran through Central Park, Times Square and into Lower Manhattan, officially bringing the winter training season in New York to an end. Runners, cheerers and volunteers, anyone who supported training all winter: We made it!! Congratulations to all #RunningRoyalty and #CHRCNegativeSplits!

You can guarantee your entry to next year’s NYC Half by running four out of the six races in the NYRR Five-Borough Series and signing up for NYRR membership (by the last qualifying event in the series).

Registration is OPEN NOW for the NYRR Queens 10K, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, and the NYRR Staten Island Half! Celebrate what makes each borough a unique place to get  out and run in.

**note – the Queens 10K is already close to selling out!**

Things are about to get LONG! Come out on Saturday March 25th for the Long One with an ending at Priti’s new digs to play some board games. Open to all #RunningRoyalty, new, old, and injured!

Run will start at Franklin and EPW @9AM. Route is here:

10K run to Game/Food Central with an optional group run back to the neighborhood for a 12mile run. Plenty of MTA stops along the way. For those who cannot make the long run, but still would like to join for board games we will be at Priti’s around 10:30/11. See you guys there! #fun


Coming soon in April, a contingent of #CHRCTrails will be running the Breakneck Point Trail Half Marathon and Marathon.

In the final weeks of preparation, they will be making a trip up to Beacon on Sunday March 26 for their second practice run. All CHRC members are invited to join in! If you have concerns about what to bring or wear, please don’t hesitate to post on the Facebook event page or contact us by emailing



Where’s the CHRC gear????

We know you’ve been eager to get the Royal Spring look to run around Brooklyn in and the CHRC design team/ Gear Shoppe owners have been steadily making progress toward a great new line to ensure you look your best for that AirBnB Brooklyn Half (or any other race this summer).

SUNDAY APRIL 16 is the tentative date for shoppe opening. You will have 10 days to place your order and select your pick-up date. More details will be available very soon!

As in the wise words of the late Canadian Running Legend, Ed Whitlock:

“The more time you spend fiddlediddling with this and that, the less time there is to run”


Let’s run!  #fun #CHRC #RunningRoyalty #CHRCWomen #CHRCMen #CHRCTrails #CHRCNegativeSplits #GoBananas
