This is a 10k and 5k cross-country race in Freshkills Park in Staten Island, New York. Come run or walk along one of the largest man-made mountains in the World. See the Manhattan Skyline, the Freedom Tower, the rolling hills of Staten Island and the Highlands of New Jersey, all while running for a good cause. Experience rolling, meandering hills consisting of paved paths, light gravel and dirt roads. See wildlife along the way. As you run this race and enjoy the 360-degree sweeping views, you will almost forget that you are running on top of the world’s largest former landfills. And while you run and complete either the 5k or 10k race, you will have the satisfaction knowing that the proceeds from the race will go to a college scholarship for deserving high school students.
