Join Randall’s Island Park Alliance for a 5K race through the park along breathtaking views of Manhattan and the Harlem River. Experience the thrill of starting and finishing in Icahn Stadium, a world class track and field venue. Set your own record on the same track Usain Bolt set his 100-meter world record! Run the River will also serve as the USA Track & Field New York 5K Road Race Championship.

Run the River 5K raises funds to protect the beautiful waterways, wetlands and recreational areas of Randall’s Island Park. This year, the Randall’s Island Park Alliance joins forces with the Queens Library and Riverkeeper to promote conservation efforts and active and healthy lifestyles for New Yorkers in the Park’s surrounding neighborhoods. Run to help support our efforts!

Following the race, celebrate with light refreshments and Greenport Harbor Brewing Company’s signature beer, and dance to DJ Tony Kerr’s favorite tunes at Icahn Stadium.

Use the discount code RVRKPR17 for $5 off your registration. For more information and to register, visit the event page.


If you’re not a runner, consider volunteering at the 5K instead!
