SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2015
9:30AM – 2:00PM (STAGGERED START)
YANKEE STADIUM, ONE EAST 161ST STREET, BRONX, NY
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
The Runyon 5K moved from summer to fall this year, but our goal remains the same – to strike out cancer! Join us on Sunday, November 15, 2015, for the seventh 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 all 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.
WELCOME TO OUR NEW WEBSITE!
We hope it’s new and improved, but we know there may be some bumps in the road. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. Please note that both new and returning participants will need to create a new username and password when registering this year.
Our website isn't the only thing that's changing though, so please see below for important information regarding the 2015 event.
Entry Fee for 5K run/walk: $40 through September 15; $50 from September 16 through October 15; $60 from October 16 through November 5 or until capacity (4,000) is reached.
Fundraising: There is no minimum requirement this year, but we still encourage you to fundraise! Signing up to run or walk is just the first step – fundraising will make an impact!
Minimum Age to Participate: 5 years old
Start Times: Runners will start first according to pace, beginning at 9:30am. Walkers will start in the early afternoon, after the last heat of runners is launched.
Entry Fee for Kids Fun Run (one lap around the warning track for children ages 5-12): $25
Can't make it to the Bronx on November 15? Register as a virtual participant!
FAIR WARNING ABOUT THE WARNING TRACK
You’ll still get to enjoy two laps around the warning track this year, but you may have heard there’s a new team in town. New York City Football Club is playing its inaugural season at Yankee Stadium, which also plays host to a college football bowl game. On November 15, the warning track may surround a soccer field or a college football field, but it will still be Yankee Stadium. No matter what the field configuration is, we think you’ll get a kick out of the Runyon 5K.

THANK YOU for your support of the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium!
