YANKEE STADIUM, ONE EAST 161ST STREET, BRONX, NY
THE RUNYON 5K RETURNS TO YANKEE STADIUM THIS FALL!
Big changes are in store, but we are thrilled to announce that the Runyon 5K will be held in person in 2022!
Join us on Thursday, September 29, for the Damon 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.
That’s right, this year’s Runyon 5K will take place on a Thursday! We won’t ask you to play hooky from work or school, but hope you can join us at Yankee Stadium for an evening workout that’s more fun than your usual gym routine! Start times will be staggered, and heats will be launched every 10 minutes beginning at 6:00 pm.
The Runyon 5K route will be a little different too in 2022! The new route will feature fewer stairs to climb up, some stairs to walk down (slowly and carefully, please), plus an additional lap around the warning track! More details to follow soon!
Here’s one thing that hasn’t changed: 100% of donations you raise will support innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
The Runyon 5K website will be updated in the coming weeks and online registration will open later this spring. Stay tuned!
If you haven’t participated in the past and would like to receive announcements about the 2022 Runyon 5K, please sign up for our Runyon 5K Email Alert.
THANK YOU for your support of the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium!
