The Giants wanted me to pass this along:

Registration is open for the NYRR New York Giants Run of Champions 5K and Walgreens Walk, Presented by Walgreens and Duane Reade.

The events will be held Sunday, June 24. The 5K run and the Walk with Walgreens start at 9:00 a.m., with the Play60 kids races beginning at 11:00 a.m. The races will start in the MetLife Stadium parking lot (between lots J and L), continue on the roadways on the perimeter of the stadium parking complex and finish in the north end zone of MetLife Stadium.

Runners of all ages and abilities are welcome to take advantage of an opportunity to live every Giants fan’s dream: running full-speed into the end zone in MetLife Stadium - without getting tackled! After the race, participants can enjoy a behind-the-scenes locker room tour, meet Giants legends, and more. The Walgreens Walk offers a less sweaty way to join the fun. Walkers follow the same course - high-stepping into the end zone is optional but encouraged. Play60 Kids Races will finish the day, as kids will have their own opportunity to run across the field at MetLife Stadium.

A special VIP Package provides access to the stadium’s MetLife 50 Club before and after the race. This air conditioned space will include a buffet with soft drinks, as well as restrooms and a staffed location to store a bag during the event. Most importantly, you will be able to take a picture with the Super Bowl trophy and rub elbows with select Giants legends.

This exciting event will benefit the Giants Foundation, which assists youth-related charities throughout the greater New York area.
