The 17th Annual Run for Knowledge

JOIN THE FUN AND RUN!
This is a fun run, not a timed race. Registered participants gather at 5:00 PM on the Esplanade at Wagner Park for the 5:30 PM start time. The one-mile course follows the Hudson River north, around the North Cove Marina, past the ferry terminal, into Rockefeller Park, ending at the Gazebo at Warren and River Terrace. Race monitors direct runners along the course. Faculty and staff from all the schools greet our children with medals at the finish line.
Then it's over to PS89/IS289 for a great party in the yard and on Warren Street from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Enjoy food, carnival games, activities with Asphalt Green, Brooklyn Robot Foundry, China Institute, Church Street School of Music & Art, and the New York Kids Club, plus karaoke, and much, much more. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you've run!
REGISTER AT YOUR SCHOOL
Registration forms and the $25 entry fee per person are due no later than Thursday, October 13th. All runners must register - including adults accompanying children. Bring forms and payment to the R4K registration table in front of the school during drop off on October 5, 6, 7, 11 & 13. You can also send in your form with payment in your child’s backpack. Payment can be cash, credit cards (at tables only) or check made out to “PS/IS 276 PTA.” Race bags with t-shirts and bibs will be distributed to classrooms prior to the Run.
