Randall's Island Sports Foundation is hosting Run the River, a 5K run/walk, this Saturday, October 23. Participants will start and finish the race in Icahn Stadium, and the course itself goes through Randall’s Island’s waterfront pathways, with views of the East River and Manhattan skyline. After the 5k race, there will be a race for children and a party with a live DJ and refreshments.
The certified, chipped, 5k begins and ends at Icahn Stadium, with the finish on the Mondo 400m running track.
