OVERALL EVENT DESCRIPTION:
The upcoming Lucky Seven Hour Adventure Run is a brand new event coordinated by the Broadway Ultra Society (BUS) to be held on Saturday, April 24 at Forest Park in Queens, NY starting at 8:30 AM. Besides being an “odd” time event, and it also will be conducted in an unusual matter. Each participant will be asked to navigate three different and separate loops through the course of 7 hours. See below descriptions. The check-in area will be near the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Park Lane South in Richmond Hill, Queens, with the Start & Finish Staging area a short distance up a park road.
The event will feature three loops: the East loop, the West loop and the Homestretch. The East loop is approx. 1.6-miles in distance and a combination of bridle path (like a carriage road) and .6-mile of a trail. The West loop is 1.4-miles and the surface is completely on a bridle path. The Homestretch is about 1.3-miles and a combination of a blacktop drive and Park perimeter sidewalk. All loops are rolling. After a few hours, they will be considered borderline hilly.
Half of the field will start on the East loop and the other half on the West loop. After about three hours elapsed, participants on the East loop will go to the West loop. And participants on the West loop will switch to the East loop. The transition will not be as complicated as appears on paper.
