Upper Manhattan's diverse and picturesque Washington Heights neighborhood provides the backdrop for this 5K. On a hilly course that circles Fort Tryon Park and the historic Cloisters, runners are serenaded by musical groups playing—you guessed it—salsa, blues, and Irish folk music, plus gospel, merengue, and jazz!
Net proceeds from the 2018 NYRR Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K will directly benefit The Armory Foundation.
