Come Run the River with us, on Saturday, October 24th, as Randall’s Island Park Alliance (RIPA) joins forces with Riverkeeper to spread awareness and raise funds to protect the beautiful waterways, wetlands, fields, and recreational areas of Randall’s Island Park. Enjoy spectacular views of Manhattan as you run along the Park’s scenic East River and Hell Gate Inlet shorelines. Experience the thrill of champions as you start and end your race on the Icahn Stadium track – where world and Olympic records are made! Then join us for a fun-filled Children’s Races, and a rockin’ Post-Race Party – with musical entertainment and light refreshments.

A great way to enhance your participation is by creating a personal fundraising page, for friends and family to support you and help keep Randall’s Island Park accessible to all New Yorkers.
