10 days of running.

Road running, trail running, ultras, triathletes - NYC has all types of runners within the five boroughs. Throughout the ten days of OutdoorFest we'll be doing daily #CITYTRAIL runs sponsored by Salomon Running. We'll be covering different types and locations from a trail running race on Staten Island to kick off the festival to running through the streets of Soho for National Running Day. Our full schedule includes:

5/29: Headlamp Trail Run Race with King of the Mountain

5/30: Run on Governors Island with The Rise

5/31: Streets + Trails of Brooklyn with Backroads & Pinetrees

6/1: Central Park with City Sports (Uptown)

6/2: Battery Park with City Sports (Downtown)

6/3: National Running Day with Eastern Mountain Sports (Soho)

6/4: Prospect Park with REI Run Club

6/5: Riverside Park with Eastern Mountain Sports (UWS)

6/6: Rockaway Beach Run with Rockaway Gliders

6/7: Group Run at our Final Expo
 

These runs are all being sponsored by Salomon Running - which means swag, shoe demos and inspiration. Here's a video they produced that speaks to the power of running specifically in a city.

Everything has to do with our way of life... and when you see someone who is actually moving. It’s motivating, it makes you a better person.
