Friends of Hudson River Park will be hosting their inaugural event, The Hudson River Park Games, on Saturday, June 13th! This exhilarating day is a fundraising event that will be as unique as the park itself, with a Pentathlon for the competitive team types, Premium Individual Sports and Activities for those looking to try something new and The Games’ Village where we invite all residents, competitors and spectators to come tap into the competitive spirit of the City with us!
The premier attraction of The Games is the Pentathlon with room for 36 teams of 10 people each. Each team must compete across 5 competitive sports over the course of the day. Earn the first-ever Hudson River Park Cup by showing your skills in dodge ball, kayaking, beach volleyball, flag football and an obstacle course. Unique individual and group classes and activities will also be offered over the course of the day for all ages including a 5k Fun Run/Walk, Vinyasa Yoga, Six Pack Boot Camp and Zumba.
The Games would not be complete without some extra fun for spectators, neighbors and visitors alike. You are invited to come watch a game, observe a class or just enjoy the great outdoor space of the Hudson River Park property. It will be a festival of fun complete with music, programming for kids of all ages and a sampling of food and beverages to keep you energized. There will be plenty of free activities for the whole family and a chance to learn more about the Hudson River Park.
