Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
For spectacular views of the Hudson, nothing beats Riverside park for early winter beauty, plus some challenging hills will keep you on your toes. You’ll wind through tree-lined paths and waterfront walkways on this totally traffic-free and peaceful course. Crossing the finish line of the 5K or 10K course you’ll be greeted with steaming cocoa, New York’s finest bagels, fresh fruit, and the satisfaction of race well run. Afterwards, visit nearby Grant’s Tomb and Riverside Church, or simply claim a park bench and enjoy watching the boat traffic on the Hudson river for a perfect day in NYC!
