The NYU School of Professional Studies has organized the Third Annual NYUSPS 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 29, 2017, at 9:00am. The brainchild of Dean Dennis Di Lorenzo, an avid runner himself, this event raises funds to support scholarships at NYUSPS, which helps students to complete their education and get them off to a running start!

Join fellow alumni, students, faculty, administrators and friends of SPS, for this exciting event. What better way to enjoy a day than an early race with our SPS community at the beautiful Hudson River Park?

We are excited to announce that this year we will again be organizing teams by division – be sure to pick your team when you register. There will also be a Young Runners ½ mile run, ages 8-16, immediately following the completion of the 5K.



Take advantage of reduced pricing with early bird registration. See chart below.
