At City Parks Foundation, our mission is to create vibrant and healthy urban communities for all New Yorkers. Through our Family Adventure Races, kids & their families participate in a free and fun race that incorporates basic exercises and sports skills. We help New Yorkers stay active, healthy and make new friends.

This exciting and free parent-child race incorporates basic exercises and sports skills, and provides a healthy, one-hour dose of fun for all! Open to children ages 8-12 and their parents.
The timed races take place on a course featuring 12 activity stations where team members must properly perform the required exercise or task before advancing to the next station and final run to the finish line.
Family Adventure Races are presented by New York Road Runners.

We bring New Yorkers together in their parks by offering free programs. Although our programming is temporarily suspended, parks remain open to find solace, to exercise, and to remain healthy. Please give now if you can so that we can be back in parks soon.
