NOTICE: Due to ice, the Whiskeython has been rescheduled for February 1st.
A lover of Whiskey, Abbe Lew devised a way for all to enjoy the libation with The Whiskeython, a three mile race where the first male and female finishers receive a bottle of fine whiskey.
This year’s installment will take place on Sunday, February 1 in Central Park. Beginning at 102 Transverse and East Drive, contestants will run two counter-clockwise Harlem Hill loops.
Not to fear, there is no drinking whiskey whilst running. It will only be a celebratory drink for after.
The women’s race begins at 11:00 a.m; men’s at 11:30 a.m.
Abbe Lew will be timing contestants. Contestants are welcome to join the after party at Third Avenue Ale House for post-race celebrations and pre-Super Bowl shenanigans. And more whiskey.
