    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 ) without the Jets. Way to fall asleep at the wheel Florham Park executives....


    http://www.nyrr.org/run-with-us/ny-giants-5k


    Race Info

    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.

    Course info

    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.

    The Jets sponsor an annual 5k run/walk for Lupus at Jetlife that doesn't include the Giants

    Thanks for your usual negative misinformation once again Traitor Jet Couchfan

    um... I think we did a charity run last month at MetLife. Would you like to retract? (Strongly suggested )

    So, now the Jets are going to find a cure for Lupus?

    Not raise money for research, the Jets themselves think they are going to find a cure for Lupus?

    Please, they can't even generate a pass rush, now they're out there claiming they can cure diseases.

    Maybe that's what Rex was doing last year as the team came unglued and the season went in the crapper.

    Focus on football, leave the disease curing to the medical community.

    Vick hits another new low

    The Jets sponsor an event to benefit the Alliance for Lupus RESEARCH in May. Vick objects.....not focusing on football DAMMIT !!

    The point of mentioning it was only to refute the SOJF OPs complaint about the Giants being the only team to sponsor a 5k run at Metlife and how it showed that the Jets FOR was asleep

    Fine, but if Rex doesn't find a cure for Lupus, this season has to be considered a collossal failure.

    The two events are completely different.

    One is an actual road race that is being organized by the New York Road Runners (the people who do the ING Marathon and scores of other road races in the metro area.) It is being branded by the Giants to the stadium and their fans and the public have an opportunity to actually compete on the field at MetLife Stadium.

    The Lupus walk is a charity event.

    My daughter raised money for the Lupas walk/run a few years ago when they did it at the old stadium. She was only 10 at the time, and she had a good time. She got to meet some players on the field....it was actually her first time ever on the field, so she got a big kick out of it.
