Everything you need to know about this year’s NYE Midnight Run

Jillian Anthony

Don't want to stand in the cold to watch the ball drop or fight for space on the dance floor at a club this New Years Eve? Why not run a race instead?

The New York Road Runners' Midnight Run is a four-mile run through Central Park that starts precisely at midnight. Celebrate the New Year early with a dance party starting at 10pm at Rumsey Playfield, then start your ran as a fireworks display goes off overhead. You can also get tickets for a pre- or post-race party at Tavern on the Green to keep the celebration going (though we suggest holding off on the champagne till after the run). Members can sign up for $55, while non-members can get in on the fun for $60.

And, hey, New York City bars are open till 4am! Party on.
