Emerald Nuts Midnight Run Description

Emerald Nuts Midnight Run - Holiday Event | Running | Sports in New York.

The Emerald Nuts Midnight Run is an annual New Year’s Eve event held in Central Park in New York City. One of the most famous parks in the world, Central Park is located in Manhattan and features races every weekend including prestigious raves such as the New York City Marathon.

Started in 1980, the Emerald Nuts Midnight Run draws over 6,000 runners each year to compete in the four-mile race. In perhaps the coolest way to start a race, runners begin as soon as the clock strikes midnight and fireworks light up the sky. In addition to the race, there is a live DJ spinning Top 40 hits at the Naumberg Bandshell and a holiday costume contest. Runners range from very competitive to those simply along for the ride however there is a prize of $500 for the male and female winners. Past Emerald Nuts Midnight Run winners include Landon Peacock and Stephanie Pezzullo.

Emerald Nuts Midnight Run entry fees start at around $45 while admission to the event for spectators is 100% free.
