Come experience fall in Van Cortlandt Park at Front Runners NY's 16th annual 5k cross-country meet, supported by the Tom Cook Fund
Front Runners New York (FRNY) has been an active running and multi-sport club for LGBT and LGBT-friendly athletes for more than 30 years. We run throughout the five boroughs and particularly in Central Park. We encourage runners of all backgrounds and abilities to join the club and experience the vast social, fitness, and training benefits of membership.
The Front Runners New York Cross Country Meet will take place on the legendary 5K cross country course at Van Cortlandt Park.
Starting in front of the Tortoise and Hare Statue, the course proceeds south on the Parade Grounds and turns left onto the "Flats." Runners make their way around the white "tortoise and hare" signs towards the Cowpath, up Cemetery Hill and over the runners bridge into the back woods where they will follow the trail back to the parade grounds and finish just past the starting line.
The course is technical, with roots, rocks, and steep hills. There may be muddy areas depending on weather.
