SOMETIME IN 2021
Please join us for the 4th Annual
New York Oyster Classic 5K (NYOC5K).
Tristate area runners and walkers will enjoy unmatched views of New York City from beautiful Governors Island before it opens to the public for the day. Spectators are welcome!
All proceeds directly benefit the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School (UA-NYHS) and its programs, working to restore the waters of New York Harbor, while training the next generation of pilots, divers, engineers, marine technicians, climate change specialists and marine biologists.
