Coney Island Creek 5K
Saturday, July 15th, 2017 8:00 AMThe Parachute Jump, the Wonder Wheel, the Cyclone, and the Original Nathan?s Famous hot dogs; these are just some of the institutions that makes Coney Island a major vacation destination throughout the World. Nestled within the northern boundaries of the World?s Biggest Playground is the new Coney Island Creek 5k, a fast and flat course that promises to titillate the senses of runners coming from near and far. Runners will enjoy photo-worthy views of the Verrazano Bridge as they run along a 5k route that let?s them take in stunning sights of a natural creek teeming with wildlife that Coney Island is less known for. You may see a hungry egret using its long beak to search for fish below or a beautiful white swan hovering on top. As runners navigate the 5k course, they will see a mysterious partially-submerged yellow submarine in the creek that is reminiscent of that playful Beatles tune. The Coney Island Creek 5k: fitness, nature, and fun! And minutes away from the heart of the World?s Biggest Playground: Coney Island.
