Beginning at the crack of the New Year, this annual race presented by the Road Runners NY also features a costume contest, a dance party and - of course - champagne!

What to Expect: Some of the 4,000 runners that make up the New York Road Runners Midnight Run take this annual race seriously - many more use it as an excuse to start the New Year by letting off some steam. This Central Park Midnight Run features fireworks, a laser light show, music and more, and spectators froma round NYC come to join in on the party.

  • A Good Time: With many runners wearing wild costumes, a pre-race dance party, and champagne flowing everywhere, the New York Road Runners Midnight Run is as much a party as it is an organized race.

  • Cold!: What do you expect? It's January in NYC! Luckily, the New York Road Runners Midnight Run participants warm up once the race gets going.

Event Hints:

  • Save the Booze for After the Run: While there are volunteers at the New York Road Runners Midnight Run actually lining the race course with dixie cups of champagne, we recommend holding off on the booze until after the race if you hope to record a good time.
