Central Park running routes - are there signs?

I'd like to do the 6 mile loop and have found many maps online w/various mileage for it and other routes. But when you're actually running are there any signs that tell you which way to go to continue on your loop? Or should I memorize the turns/streets and hope for the best?

It looks fairly easy on the map but I've walked through portions of the park before and know you can end up on another road if you're not sure where you're going.

Thank you!

The running routes are on the main streets and paths and it is unlikely that you will get lost. However, they are not marked.

Runners do their running on the road that circles the park (East drive and West drive) or around the reservoir. There are no signs indicating either running route. You can't get lost on either.

Cars use the park drives from 7 to 10 AM and 4 to 7 PM Monday to Friday and the runners lanes are clearly marked.
