Air France and New York Road Runners 8k Festival
August 29, 2015 @ 6:45 am - September 7, 2015 @ 10:30 am
Who: Air France and New York Road Runners
What: FIRST EVER FRANCE RUN (8K) AND FESTIVAL
Where: Central Park- mid-park between 66th and 72nd Streets
When: Race begins at 8am on Saturday, August 29, 2015 with French Festival to follow until 10:30am
Why: France Run is inspired by the dynamic French culture of running and Air France’s history of providing its passengers with the unique opportunity to fuel their passion for the sport through its Flying Blue Running Club. The France Run is a qualifier for the TCS New York City Marathon through the NYRR 9+1 Program, but visitors don’t have to run to enjoy the French festival on race day. The festival will feature a variety of complimentary offerings by French vendors and there will also be opportunities for runners to enter raffle drawings and win prizes, such as a trip to Paris, FIAF language learning course gift certificates and a 5-piece Le Creuset signature set.
