Central Park 5K Fun Run

See Central Park on a fun and casual 5K run with a companion-guide. Wind along snaking paths through meadows and woods and over rolling hills in the company of a fellow runner. Get your daily exercise with a dose of history, as you take brief stops along your route to learn about some of the significant sites in this storied Manhattan green space.

What to Expect
Don't plan to break your personal best time! It's a casual run and we make brief stops along the way to take pictures and discuss points of interest. Average pace time is 9:30 minutes/mile. No treadmill can compare!

Our guides will lead you on a 3.5 mile run through Central Park during which you will learn about its amazing history.
