Firefighters Field, Roosevelt Island
Join us for the 2nd annual NYCRUNS Ice Cream Social on Roosevelt Island! This event is our summer season kick-off and what better way to celebrate summer than with ice cream?
Courses: Please see our standard 5K and 10K course maps. Please note that due to ongoing construction the actual courses may differ. They will be accurately measured using the standard course certification technique. Also, note that there is a possibility we will not be able to do the 10K due to ongoing construction. We will be doing everything we can to avoid this possibility, but some elements are difficult to predict at this time. If the 10K is not feasible, all runners will be automatically switched into the 5K.
Awards: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female runners in each race and the top 3 in each ten-year age group approximately one hour after each race begins.
Packet Pickup: Packet pickup will also be available on race day beginning at 8:00 AM. Packet pickup prior to race day will be available but the details are TBD. It will most likely be on Friday 5/23.
Amenities: Bag check and toilets will be provided. Bagels, spreads, fresh fruit and ice cream will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread. The giveaway for this race will be a pint glass.
Directions: Take the F train or Tram to Roosevelt Island. All pre- and post-race activities are on Firefighters Field, a short walk from public transit, just north of both starting areas and just south of the finish. Please check MTA 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.
Cost: $25 until 3/31, $30 until 5/11, and $40 thereafter. NYCRUNS members receive a 5% discount, race deferral rights, and other perks. Race day registration (if available) is cash only. Register early and save us all a lot of hassle!
The standard no-refunds, no-deferrals, no-transfers policy applies, unless you are signed up for the NYCRUNS membership program.
