Running with Refugees NYC is a 5k race in solidarity with the global refugee community and to raise funds for Yoga & Sport with Refugees.

About this event

Over 100 million people in the world today have been forcibly displaced from their homes for reasons such as war, conflict, and climate change. Running with Refugees NYC is a 5k race through the Lower East Side and the East Village as an act of solidarity with the global refugee community and a fundraiser for Yoga and Sport with Refugees (YSR). YSR has been providing safe spaces for refugees on the European border through sport since 2017. Through their efforts, they've improved the mental and physical health of over 30,000 refugees, empowered refugees by intentionally placing them in leadership positions, and created a global community. This race is part of the YSR Global Run Series in which races to support refugees will also be happening on the same day in Athens, Amsterdam, Oslo, and Rome.

Running with Refugees NYC will take place on September 11 at 5pm at Bridge Runners HQ (176 Delancey Street). All funds raised will go to YSR so that they can continue their life changing work. There will be prizes for the first place male, female, and non-binary runners, as well as a prize raffle. Prizes and brand partners to be announced soon. We'll see you there!
