Thousands of New Yorkers and runners from around the country will start the New Year off on the right foot—figuratively and literally. Reveling runners will combine their sparkles and sneakers for a massive dance party, costume parade and contest, four-mile run, and a 15-minute fireworks show as see on foot. Runners can even toast to a healthy New Year with a sparkling cider fluid station at the halfway point.
Runners and non-runners alike are welcome for the dance party; it’s free and open to the public. For spectators, a prime spot to check out the free fireworks show is just south of 72nd Street.
