Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium route

The Runyon 5K will knock your average 5K out of the park! You'll run or walk through Yankee Stadium's concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and enjoy special access to your own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.

This is a fairly complex but well marked route, and will be lined with supportive volunteers to guide you safely to the finish.

Event Details

What’s Included
Your race packet consists of your bib number and attached ChronoTrack B-Tags which will record your time. Participants can also pick up their Runyon 5K t-shirts at advance packet pick-up.
Raceday Logistics
The entire Runyon 5K route is inside Yankee Stadium and is narrower than a traditional road race, so participants' start times must be staggered to avoid congestion and ensure everyone's safety. You can choose your own start time when you register, but please keep the following in mind:

- Only select Heat 1 at 9:30 am if you plan to run competitively at a 6-minute to 7-minute mile pace.
- Heat 2 at 9:40 am, Heat 3 at 9:50 am, and Heat 4 at 10:00 am are for runners only.
- All other heats (Heat 5 at 10:10 am through Heat 13 at 11:30 am) are available for runners and walkers to select on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure everyone's safety, participants who are walking in Heat 5 or subsequent heats should position themselves in the back of the pack at the start line, while runners should head to the front. Walkers should stay to the right, allowing runners to pass on the left.

The last heat is currently scheduled for 11:30 am. Additional heats will be added if necessary. While adjustments can be made, team members should check with their team captain prior to registering so you can choose the same start time as the rest of your team.
Friends and family members who would like to watch you make your way around the warning track can do so from the Delta SKY360° Suite, which is located in the nine sections of the Main Level directly behind home plate, and offers an incredible view of the field. Please note there will be a $5 suggested donation for adults to enter the spectator area. This area will also be open to participants prior to or after their run/walk. Limited concessions will be available for purchase. Participants and spectators can enter through the Suite Entrance just beyond Gate 4 beginning at 9am. No tickets are required.
Can I pick up my race packet in advance?

Yes. Participants can pick up their race packets in advance of the run/walk. Race Packets will be available for advance pick-up at 24 Hour Fitness, located at 153 East 53rd Street (between Lexington and 3rd Avenues) in midtown Manhattan. The date(s) and time will be announced soon. Please check back.

What time will I need to arrive at the Stadium?

Participants should arrive 30 minutes prior to your assigned start time. If you are picking up your race packet on event day, please allow some additional time to retrieve your bib number at check-in inside the Great Hall.

How long will the Runyon 5K take?

This depends on each participant's fitness level and speed. Competitive runners may finish in 18 minutes, while the average runner may take 30 minutes to finish. Walkers should complete the route in about an hour.
