Thousands of runners will “kick off” Game Day wearing their favorite football team’s jersey and burning off some pre-game energy by running a four-mile loop in Central Park. Before the race, participants can test their arm strength in the longest football throw contest, challenging some of the city’s most dedicated football fans. Later, during mile two of the race, participants can predict the winner of the night’s game by running under their special team banner.
8:00 a.m.: Start of longest football throw contest
9:00 a.m.: Start of the 4-mile race
