Is anyone else in the downtown area running the nyc marathon on Nov. 4? If so, how are you getting to Staten Island?

I have the shuttle option from MetLife and was going to take a lyft/uber there. If anyone would like to join in the lyft/uber, I wouldn't mind covering it.

Or if you have a means to get to Staten Island and wouldn't mind accommodating one more person, I can reimburse for the ride and what not.


Why ride an Uber/Lyft to MetLife Stadium when it would take you just a tad longer to take the same car to the start line? Specially considering that the shuttles require you to arrive at an ungodly, super early hour. Depending on which wave you are running, your best bet is to arrive at SI 90 minutes before your assigned start time. The corrals for each start time usually close an hour early (last year they actually shrank this time lead to about 45 or 50 minutes) so keep that in mind. Clearing security is a breeze, but walking from the security checkpoint to the actual staging areas is a good 10 or 15 minute walk. Good luck!
