The route of the event will take participants along the Coney Island Boardwalk and is dedicated to saving walruses, their habitat, and other wildlife. The Wildlife Conservation Society works around the world and in the walrus’s Arctic range to help combat threats facing these majestic animals.
Almost 2,000 runners and walkers are registered. For more information, visit wcsrunforthewild.org/nyaquarium. The run is sponsored by Con Edison.
