Firefighters Field, Roosevelt Island

Address: 425 Main St. New York, NY

Rumor has it that Roosevelt Island has been overrun by all manner of scary things. Join us in the madness for this Halloween 5K & 10K with a superb after party including a great live band and a Halloween themed post-race spread. Goblins and ghouls of all ages are welcome.

Courses: Please see our standard 5K and 10K course maps.  You will enjoy one of a kind views of Manhattan, Queens, and beyond!

Awards: Awards will be given to the top three male and female runners overall in each race.  Age group awards in the 5K will be awarded to the top three in each the following age groups: 9 and under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and over.  Age group awards in the 10K will be awarded to the top three in each of the following age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and over.  Our awards policy is available here.  Prizes will also be given for the best costumes, so get creative!

Packet Pickup: Pre-Race packet pickup is yet to be determined. Race-day packet pickup will be available near the start beginning at 7:30 AM. We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance of race day to avoid lines.

Amenities: Bag check and toilets will be provided. Bagels, spreads, fresh fruit and Halloween candy will make up the great NYCRUNS post race spread. The giveaway for this race will be a spooky race shirt!

Please checkMTA Trip Planner for up to date and detailed mass transit directions and Google Maps for driving directions. Parking is limited at all of our events, we strongly encourage you to use mass transit.
