To avoid disappointment, please call to confirm the event is still happening - and remember to follow COVID safety precautions
Mother’s Day is on! The Mother's Day 5K race will start and finish in FDR park, starting from lot 1. Pies as prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place! COVID protocols will be followed.
There are some things of which you should be aware:
This 5k race is for females only. Start and bib pick up at Parking Lot 1, please enter from the Taconic entrance at FDR Park. There will be bib pick on May 8th as well, 4pm-5pm, also in lot 1. There’s a map at the bottom of the page.
Because of COVID the race will start in waves, the first wave will be at 8am, with each wave starting in one minute increments. In registration you will be asked if there are people you want to start with or if you know your predicted time.
This will be a different course than in past years to deal with some closures in the park and have the start and end of the race in the same place. Online registration only – no race day signup. There is a limit of 200 runners total.
You must wear a mask at all times except when actually racing. You must stay on the left on the roadway, and maintain a 6′ distance from everyone not involved in the race. Unfortunately, food and drink, champagne flutes and mimosas, awards and the award ceremony will have to wait for next year. Runners may not race with a dog. There are no exceptions. Please distance yourself from dogs that are being walked on the course. No strollers are allowed in the race. You will receive an email Friday night or Saturday morning before the race with your wave and start time, and instructions for picking up your bib on Saturday if you would like.
We won’t have age group awards. We will post age group winners on the website.
