Abbott Dash to the Finish

The marathon was not the only race being held in New York last weekend. Taking full advantage of the trip over the Atlantic to watch their mum take on the marathon on Sunday, Bryony Andrew and sister Charlotte hit the city streets and Central Park paths that make the last 5k of the marathon in the morning.

Starting outside the United Nations building, over 10000 runners tear through midtown Manhattan. Passing the Chrysler Building, Grand Central Station and Bryant’s Park, they then turned up 6th Avenue passing the world famous Radio City Music Hall.

They then emerged into Central Park. Bryony and Charlotte wound their way through the park, passing the City Zoo before snaking their way along to the finishline outside the famous Tavern on the Green. 

Bryony finished first in 26.14 with her trademark smile

“That was brilliant!” She chirps “The weather, the crowds… coming through Central Park was amazing”

Charlotte wasn’t far behind in 33 minutes.
