Fifth Avenue & 82nd St.
(at steps in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Registration: 8:30 am 
AGES 8 – 14 years ONLY!


1. The NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile is a very exciting ONE MILE RACE down Fifth Avenue. It can be walked, but it IS one mile. Fifth Avenue will be lined with spectators cheering for the kids – so it’s a great event for our older kids to experience.

2. This world class race is a New York Road Runners event with NUMEROUS race heats for various age groups throughout the morning. That being the case, NYRR sticks to a very tight schedule and the races go off like clockwork.

PLEASE allow extra time so you can get there early or you WILL miss the race.
(and we don’t want THAT to happen!)
