Travel and Accommodations

Last year, participants flew in from Sweden, London, Alabama, California, Seattle, New Mexico, and more.  For the full experience, we recommend that out-of-towners arrive on Friday evening or early Saturday morning.  We will organize a casual “hydration” party at a bar on Friday evening for people who have already arrived.  (Though don’t change all your travel plans and take a day off from work just to make it.)

We have secured discounted rates at two hotels in Lower Manhattan.  Both are walking distance to the events on Saturday and the Governors Island Ferry on Sunday morning.  These rates are pretty much unheard-of for New York City.  The rates expire on August 23, 2011 (one month before the event).  Rooms are limited (and will sell out) - so book now.

1. Double Tree (Financial District): $209/night (+ tax) for single or double

- Call the DoubleTree Financial District: 1.212.480.9100

- Ask for the Reservations line

- Let them know that you’re with the NYC Barefoot Run

2. Andaz (Wall Street): $245/night (+ tax) for single or double

- Call the Andaz: 1.888.421.1442 (note: the Andaz is a Hyatt Hotel, so line is for all Hyatt reservations)

- Ask to make a reservation at the Andaz (Wall Street location)

- Let them know that you’re with the NYC Barefoot Run
