Running and the Subway: Cherry Tree Detour

OK, so I know the MTA has to do work on the tracks. But those running the Cherry Tree this Sunday, take note: the F line will be "f'd" up.

From the MTA site:

"Local shuttle buses make all stops between Jay St and Church Av: Bergen St, Carroll St, Smith-9 Sts, 4 Av-9 St, 7 Av, 15 St-Prospect Park, and Fort Hamilton Pkwy."

That means, the closest subway to the start is now reachable by bus. Ugh.

Options: Other than the R train (which will drop you off along 4th Ave.), the 2/3 to Grand Army Plaza, and then run a mile plus to the start or to Bishop Ford for registration. Busing is an option, just give yourself time.

Ultimately, it gives you a chance to do a warmup, so not too bad.

Gotta love construction. It almost makes one want to just stay home!
