  1. To be a bit clearer: the Festival is at Central Park. However, if you are starting at Prospect Park, in order to complete whatever distance you choose, you have to end up back where you started. So if you start at Prospect Park and plan to do, say, 75 miles, when you get to Central Park, you will still have about 14 or 15 miles to go.
