The River Project's 5K SHAD RUN
Join The River Project's Shad Run Fundraiser
Saturday, April 26, 2014
The Shad Run is a new 5K run and 1.5 mile walk along Lower Manhattan’s scenic West Side waterfront in Hudson River Park, and is produced by NYCRUNS. It raises funds for The River Project's efforts on behalf of the Hudson River Estuary, and raises awareness of the American shad, legendary fish of the Hudson, now making their annual swim from the ocean to their freshwater spawning grounds upriver.
Come run or walk with us alongside the shad's ancient migratory route. Prizes for the top fund-raising runner, walker, and dog + walker teams! Walkers can bring their children, strollers, and dogs. There will be Small Fry (kids) events and activities at the Pier 40 Wetlab for the whole family with catering by American Flatbread. Scientists, fishermen and River Project Staff will be on-hand to explore Hudson River shad migration.
