About This Activity


We are proud to present the inaugural Navy Yard 5k!  This fun, free, and scenic 5k run will take place at the Navy Yard on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, rain or shine.  The race is open only to employees of the Navy Yard.  In addition to the race, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, a health fair will take place in Crescent Park, featuring Navy Yard tenants sharing how to educate and improve on all aspects of workplace health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle.  This event is a great way for the community to come together, be active, and have fun!  Whether you participate as a runner or as a spectator, we hope to see you there! #TNYsummer
