2015 Midnight Half: Post Race Interview with 2nd Place Female Cara Notarianni

The Midnight Half is really starting to get interesting. This race used to be made up of a small community of local runners, but in the last couple of years its reach has attracted many new people. When I caught up with the lead female at checkpoint #2 in Red Hook, I wasn’t surprised that I had never met her before.

2015 Midnight Half: Post Race Interview with 3rd Place Overall Mac Schneider

In 2014 Mac Schneider won the Midnight Half in 1:16:00. Mac practiced the route ahead of time, he had the most efficient path, he took risks, he jumped fences and ran through projects..and he was fast as hell. He was the first competitor to take the open-course check-point format and use it to his advantage..and in doing so beat out guys like Matt Dinusson (2nd place 1:18:11), Asher Fusco (3rd 1:18:12) and the fastest guy to ever lose the Midnight Half, Jerry Faulkner (16th 1:26:27). After 2014 people changed their approach to this race, people realized that walking on this course without a strategy, without a plan, is a guaranteed way to not win.

2015 Midnight Half: Post Race Interview with 2nd Place Overall Jerry Faulkner

Everyone knows one thing about Jerry Faulkner, he is fast. One of the fastest around, especially in the context of NYC urban running. His personal best in the marathon is a 2:24:12, in the half-marathon he has hammered out a 1:07:16. He is the kind of runner that doesn’t register for major marathons – he gets invited by the organizers to run. And when he does, he starts with the elites and he finishes with the elites. He is on a different level. Featured image of Jerry on the Manhattan Bridge in the 2015 Midnight Half by Allen Carr.
