Race Information

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.

The half marathon begins on West Drive near 96th Street, completing two and a half loops of the park across 72nd Street and up Harlem Hill before finishing on the 102nd Street transverse. The 5K begins a bit further south and finishes in the same spot.
