How to Register
Kicking off at 5 PM on December 8, the 22nd annual Last Run 5K is a must for runners of all ages. Not only does the popular winter 5K run through the spectacular Capital Holiday Lights display in Washington Park, but an incredible fireworks show will light up the night sky!
You can save when you sign up early. Registration is only $25 through October, but that cost will bump up to $30 on November 1 and then to $35 on December 1 while space is available. To sign up, you can either:
- Download the mail-in entry form from AlbanyEvents.org, or
- Register online at ZippyReg.com/?event=1151
About the 5K
The December race will feature chip timing by Albany Running Exchange Event Productions as well as age-based divisional awards and random prize drawings. In addition, all registered runners will bring home a Last Run 5K long-sleeve wicking fabric shirt.
Following the event, awards recognition and the posting of results will be held at the base of the Egg at the Empire State Plaza Concourse.
