NYCRUNS Frozen Penguin 5K
The weather in NYC at this time of year is fit for penguins, but the truth is it’s also fit for runners of all levels. Snag a new PR or simply add another race to your list. Either way, the Frozen Penguin in Riverside Park is calling your name Chilly Willy.
This race will start and finish near 96th Street inside Riverside Park. You’ll wind through tree-lined paths and waterfront walkways on this totally traffic-free and peaceful course. The course is challenging, but offers plenty of downhills to make up for the uphills!
