Description

Upper Manhattan's diverse and picturesque Washington Heights neighborhood provides the backdrop for this 5K. On a hilly course that circles Fort Tryon Park and the historic Cloisters, runners are serenaded by musical groups playing—you guessed it—salsa, blues, and Irish folk music, plus gospel, merengue, and jazz!

Races for youngsters ages 2 to 12 are held after the 5K—between 50 feet and 1/5 of a mile on Fort Washington Avenue. They’ll sprint to the finish banner, where every kid will receive a medal from New York City firefighters and police officers.

Net proceeds from the 2017 NYRR Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K will directly benefit The Armory Foundation.

Event hashtag: #WashHeights5K—use it in your public tweets and Instagrams to be automatically entered into the NYRR Social Hashtag Challenge to win prizes!

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!

Course Info

Mile 1: Start at West 173rd Street—five blocks north of the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory—and head north (and uphill) on Fort Washington Avenue. Run under the George Washington Bridge at 178th Street and continue uphill, then downhill, then uphill again.

Mile 2: Enter Fort Tryon Park and run a counter-clockwise loop of Margaret Corbin Road over rolling hills.>

Mile 3: Exit the park just past the two-mile mark and retrace your steps back down Fort Washington Avenue to the finish near 170th Street.
