R-U-N? We are! Back on the summer schedule, the NYRR R-U-N 5K is a unique, social weekday run in Central Park, with a race start time of 7:00 p.m.
Challenge your friends, runners and non-runners alike—R-U-N?—to join you for 3.1 miles in scenic Central Park. Afterward, head out of the park to continue your evening and enjoy refreshments with your fellow runners at a nearby establishment—a twist to your usual Thursday happy hour.
Be sure to come early in order to enjoy our pre-race festival on the 102nd Street Transverse from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., featuring lawn games (cornhole, Connect Four, foosball), social photo booths, and more!
