R-U-N? We are! Back on the summer schedule for its second year, the NYRR R-U-N 5K is a unique, social-themed 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.
This is a social-themed 5K, however, all runners will be timed and will receive 9+1 program credit.
Event hashtag: #r_u_n_5K—use it in your public tweets and Instagrams to be automatically entered into the NYRR Social Hashtag Challenge to win prizes!
Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
