There’s no better way to start your 4th of July than with a morning run through Lower Manhattan.

This Friday at 7AM, take part in a City Running Tour and see some of New York’s most spectacular views  — all before noon.

Beginning right in the heart of Lower Manhattan, registrants will meet on the corner of Chambers Street and Centre Street by the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. Participants will first run through the bustling streets of Chinatown, and then over the East River on the Manhattan Bridge. After crossing the bridge, runners will find themselves in the premier art district of DUMBO, taking in some of Brooklyn’s finest views.

Runners will then head back to Lower Manhattan, running across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. After covering four and a half miles of busy streets and remarkable New York City views, the run will end back downtown in front of City Hall.

See Manhattan and Brooklyn in a new and unique way and start the weekend with a workout.

Registration for the 4th of July is only open until Wednesday, July 2nd at 7:59pm. Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity!
