Getting to Icahn Stadium

FREE SHUTTLES

The TrackTown Summer Series will be providing free shuttles to and from Icahn Stadium to all spectators or road race participants.

Shuttles will depart every 25 minutes from Lexington and E 125th Avenue to Icahn Stadium bus stop. Shuttles will start at 4:00pm and end at midnight. You can get to Lexington and E 125th via subway, by taking the 4, 5, or 6 train.

SUBWAY & BUS

Getting to Randall’s Island Park via subway and bus is easy! Via subway, you take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 125th street. Once there, you can hop on the X80 express bus at 125th street and Lexington avenue, and the X80 will take you directly to the festival entrance. If you wish to walk to the festival from 125th street, you can walk east on 125th street, cross the RFK Bridge, and you’re there! The distance from the 125th subway station to the festival is 1 mile (the equivalent of 20 city blocks).

Please also note that the X80 express bus collects a $6.50 round-trip fare when you board the bus, but if you have come from the subway only $3.75 is deducted. Monthly MetroCards do not work on the X8o bus, so make sure you have a MetroCard with cash on it or exact change so you can pay the X80 driver upon boarding.

WALKING / BIKING

Walking and biking to Randall’s Island Park is easy, and you can get there by crossing the RFK Bridge from Manhattan/125th street (about 15 minutes walking), RFK Bridge from Queens (about 30 minutes walking), or the RFK bridge from the Bronx (about 15 minutes walking). The event is located inside Icahn stadium, so you can simply follow signs toward Icahn.

You can also walk across the footbridge from E. 103rd St. in Manhattan onto Randall’s Island Park. It takes about 20-25 minutes to walk from the Manhattan side of the footbridge to the stadium entrance.

If you plan on biking to the festival, we advise you to come via the 103rd street footbridge.

Randall’s Island Park is one of New York’s City’s most unique and multi-faceted public parks. Located in the middle of the City, the park comprises most of an island in the East River that is situated between Manhattan, The Bronx, and Queens. Featuring a wide array of fields and spaces, Randall’s Island is home to a world class Tennis Center, a full service Golf Center, an IAAF-certified track and field facility (Icahn Stadium), over 60 playing fields, miles of waterfront bike and pedestrian pathways, and a newly renovated Event Lawn where concerts and festivals are held.  The Randall’s Island Park Alliance (RIPA), which oversees and governs the island, is celebrating 25 amazing years of progress in transforming Randall’s Island Park into an innovative and exciting destination for sports, recreation, environmental exploration and cultural events.  Thanks to their tremendous vision and tireless work since 1992, RIPA has revived the park to what it is today.
