Time Out says

The New York Rogue Runners is a friendly consortium of exercise enthusiasts that stages good-natured gatherings like the yearly, whiskey-soaked Galway Bay Gallop through Central Park. Anyone can take part in the club’s second annual Dizzy Bat Race; simply register online for a chance to spin your noggin around a baseball bat ten times before running round the bags in nauseated delirium. The winner of this goofy, just-for-fun gauntlet will receive a bag of baseball-themed treats. No booze will be consumed during the event, per Central Park mandates, but organizers have promised a celebratory bar visit afterward. The event takes place at the Great Lawn ball fields.
