THE RUNYON 5K IS HEADING BACK TO AUGUST!
Join us on Sunday, August 21, 2016, for the eighth 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 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.
5K Entry Fee: $45 through June 30; $55 from July 1 through August 12; $65 from August 12 through August 19; 5K Entry Fee for Kids (ages 5-12): $25 through August 19
Fundraising: All Runyon 5K participants should 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 after the last heat of runners is launched. Start times will be announced on August 15.
Can't make it to the Bronx on August 21? Register as a virtual participant!
FAIR WARNING ABOUT THE WARNING TRACK
You’ll get to enjoy two laps around the warning track as in the past, but New York City Football Club is playing at Yankee Stadium the day before the Runyon 5K this year, so the warning track will surround a soccer field. No matter what the field configuration is, we know you’ll get a kick out of the Runyon 5K.

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