9:30AM – 11:30AM (STAGGERED START)
YANKEE STADIUM, ONE EAST 161ST STREET, BRONX, NY
NEW SEASON, SAME GOAL: STRIKE OUT CANCER!
The Runyon 5K moved from summer to spring this year, but our goal remains the same – to strike out cancer! Join us on Sunday, April 15, 2018, for the 10th annual Runyon 5K, a unique cancer research fundraising run/walk that uses Yankee Stadium as its course. Run or walk the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take your own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field!
You can participate as an individual or get friends, family members and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of the donations you raise in support of your run/walk will go to innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN START TIME!
The entire Runyon 5K route is inside Yankee Stadium and is narrower than a traditional road race, so participants' start times must be staggered to avoid congestion and ensure everyone's safety. When you register, choose the heat and start time that work best for you! Please keep in mind that you should only select Heat 1 at 9:30 am if you plan to run competitively at a 6-minute to 8-minute mile pace. All other heats, which will be launched every 10 minutes, are open to runners and walkers on a first-come, first-served basis. Heat 2 will start at 9:40 am, Heat 3 will follow at 9:50 am, and so on. The last heat is currently scheduled for 11:00 am. Additional heats will be added if necessary. While adjustments can be made, team members should check with their team captain prior to registering so you can choose the same start time as the rest of your team.
We encourage all Runyon 5K participants to fundraise! Signing up to run or walk is just the first step – fundraising will make a difference! Not only that, but the money you give and raise could be matched by one of our generous donors, doubling its impact! See how the match works here.
