Additional FAQ

Q. It might rain will you cancel?

Answer here.

Q. I'm running, what time does that start?

A. Registration for the run goes from 7:30PM-8:00PM. Race begins at 8:30PM. 

Q. Is this timed? Are there prizes?

Yes and yes! 

Q. If I forget my headlamp can I still run?

No.

Q. I purchased a shuttle pass, where do I go? 

You will exit the Staten Island Ferry St. George Terminal in the front (south side) and turn left to find the passenger pick up/drop off. There you will see a large white 15 passenger van. That’s your ride! Here’s a map circling said passenger pick up /drop off area: http://imgur.com/kwlbGpd

Q. What's for dinner?

You can bring your own food (picnic style), cook your own food with a campstove (or over the fire) or purchase food from Mi Casa who will be on site! 

Q. Can I drive myself?

Yes, there is parking on site. **Please do not use the Google Maps address for Kaufman it will lead you astray!**  For GPS use: 1215-1251 Manor Rd, Staten Island, NY you will see the entrance to the "JCC camp" across the street from the school. That's where you turn.

Once you park you'll see a path on the left hand side of the lot leading up to a lake where check-in is. 

Q. Can I bring kids, a dog, illegal substances or my own alcohol?

No.
