-) NYRR Gridiron 4M / Longest Football Throw:
You’re not just an armchair quarterback. On February 4, get your own game on! Start the big day by testing your arm strength in the Longest Football Throw contest starting at 8:00 a.m. Bring your kids to enjoy the football fun, too! They can toss the ball to show up the adults.
Once you've proven your passing game, you can work on your running game with four miles in Central Park to burn off some pre-game energy. Wear your favorite team's jersey to show your spirit and vote with your feet for that night's champion at our prediction counter near the two-mile mark.
After competing with your arm and then with your legs, you’ll have earned that seat to watch the game!
