The race will take place in the Financial district with the best viewing on Water or Wall street (see map)

The event will also feature a Pro womens race and this race will help to raise funds/awareness for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Cipo is in retirement so he will not compete.

Distance: 62.5 miles/ 100km

Spectators: 250,000 (Anticipated)

Course Description: A 1.2-mile circuit through the streets of Lower Manhattan with the Start/Finish line at Wall & Water Streets, a few blocks south of South Street Seaport. A challenging, spectator-friendly circuit designed to provide a great venue for public viewing and corporate hospitality in Lower Manhattan with VIP viewing areas.

Best Viewing: Intersection of Wall & Water Sts. near the Start/Finish and at any of the circuit's eight turns.

I called and spoke to Chris Spaeth. He informed me that the only volunteer spots avail are the "Stage Crew and Site Decorators". Oh well, guess I'll be one of the many spectators. Thanks for the link, though! I hope you are in b/c I'd love to see your pics afterwards! ;-)
