This race takes place in Central Park in Manhattan. If you're looking for the NYRR R-U-N Brooklyn 5K in Prospect Park, visit this page.

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 and enjoy our pre-race festival!
