New York Giants Run of Champions 5K @ MetLife Stadium
For years the Mets did the Dash to Home Plate 5k at Shea with the NYRR and I always thought the Jets should orchestrate something similar.
Alas, the Giants will now do an event in OUR stadium (right :rolleyes:) without the Jets. Way to fall asleep at the wheel Florham Park executives....
Bring the whole family to the inaugural New York Giants Run of Champions 5K Presented by Walgreens and Duane Reade! Runners of all ages and abilities get a chance to live every Giants fan’s dream: running full-speed into the end zone in MetLife Stadium—without getting tackled! After the race, enjoy a behind-the-gridiron tour, meet Giants legends, and more.
The Walk with Walgreens offers another opportunity to join the fun. Walkers follow the same course—high-stepping into the end zone is optional, but encouraged. A special VIP Package gives you a close-up look at the Super Bowl trophy, breakfast before or after the race in the MetLife 50 Club, and a chance to rub elbows with players. Please note that entry for the VIP PAckage has reached capacity and is closed.
This exciting event will benefit the Giants Foundation, which assists youth-related charities throughout the greater New York area.
The 5K run and walk will start in the MetLife Stadium parking lot between lots J and L, follow roadways on the perimeter of the stadium parking complex, and finish on the MetLife Stadium field in the northern end zone.
