RACE DAY INFO

Governors Island is accessible by boat only. 

 

The ferry will depart the Governors Island Ferry Terminal/Battery Maritime Building, 10 South Street, NY, NY (adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal) at 8 a.m. sharp. Runners MUST be on this ferry.

 

Runners will need their Oyster Classic bib to board, and all spectators will need their NYHOC '20 bracelets. The race will start at 9 a.m.

 

On the island, just off the ferry, you'll find directions to the NY Harbor School, and the start/finish line. Bag check* and toilets will be available in the same area.

 

Water tables with cups will be available at the start and the finish areas. Bring a water bottle with you to fill up at the island's water filing stations along the course. We’ll meet you and your spectators at the finish line with bagels and fresh fruit.

 

The New York Oyster Classic 5K is rain or shine and we are unable to offer registration refunds.
