REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
SATURDAY, JULY 15, 2017
9:30AM – 11:30AM (STAGGERED START)
YANKEE STADIUM, ONE EAST 161ST STREET, BRONX, NY
NEW DAY, NEW MONTH, SAME GOAL: STRIKE OUT CANCER!
Join us on Saturday, July 15, 2017, for the ninth 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.
READ THIS BEFORE YOU REGISTER!
This year, we are letting YOU choose your start time when you register! Rather than letting the Runyon 5K team decide when you’ll head to the start line, you can select your start time when you sign up! Pick the time that works best for you, keeping one thing in mind: 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 10:40 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.
All Runyon 5K participants should 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.

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