New Years Eve Running Races

Partying the night away is one way to ring in the new year. But if you’d prefer to welcome 2018 with some feel-good physical activity—or if you’re just looking for a way to mix up your usual plans—a New Year’s Eve race might be more up your alley. In some cases, you’ll literally be crossing the finish line of 2017 as the clock strikes midnight, your body pumping with endorphins like your own personal fireworks show. Feeling sweaty and accomplished is definitely not a bad way to start the new year.
If you want to run into 2018 head first, sign up for one of these 10 races. They take place all across the country, from New York to Wisconsin to California, and include 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons. Some of them are scheduled during the day (perfect if you still want to get all done up and hit the town before the ball drops) and others are timed so that you’ll finish right as the new year starts. Hurry up and sign up for your sweatiest night out before it’s too late.
(Psst: You should also sign up for SELF’s New Year’s Challenge here. It’s free and we’re all starting on January 1!)
1. Brazen New Year’s Race — Lake Chabot, California
Run along the serene Quarry Lakes in either a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon. The races start early in the day on New Year’s Eve, so you’ll be able to wrap up the final hours of 2017 with a good sweat and still be able to party with your loved ones that night. Sign up here.
2. NYE 5K and Hangover Half — Wichita, Kansas
This race starts promptly at 11:45 P.M.—just 15 minutes before 2017 ends. Glasses of champagne will be waiting for you at the finish line (as they should be). If you’d rather wait until New Year’s Day to do your running, there’s also a “hangover” half-marathon and 5K you can run that day. Sign up here.
3. Beat the New Year 5K — Salt Lake City, Utah
Bundle up for this chilly nighttime race through snowy Salt Lake City. Your registration fee includes a jacket to run in, and you’ll also be greeted with hot cocoa at the finish line. Sign up here.
4. New Year’s Double — Allen, Texas
You can sign up for 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons either on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. Heads up: Runners who participate in two races will receive a “special perk.” Sign up here.
5. Run in the New Year 5K — Huntington Beach, California
If you prefer to do your running in warmer climates, head to sunny Huntington Beach. You can sign up for a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon along the beach—just be sure to do it before registration ends on December 30th. Sign up here.
6. Run Into the New Year — Franklin, Wisconsin
When you register for this race you’ll get a commemorative heat-tech T-shirt, a snowflake medal, a finishers mug, and post-race refreshments. The race itself will be snowy, so make sure to throw on some extra layers! Sign up here.
7. Midnight Madness Run — Phoenix, Arizona
This 5K run through Phoenix starts at 10:30 P.M. on New Year’s Eve, so you’ll have time to wrap things up and grab a glass of champagne before the clock strikes midnight. There’s a second 5K at 12:10 A.M. for those who just can’t wait to get in their first run of the year. Sign up here.
8. NYE Glow Run 5K — Harrisonburg, Virginia
This race starts just after sunset and all participants will receive glow-in-the-dark apparel and accessories. No need for fireworks—you’ll be lighting up the new year. Sign up here.
9. NYRR Midnight Run — New York, New York
If you missed out on the New York Marathon (or just want another excuse to run through the Big Apple), this late night race is for you. The race is 4 miles long, starts at midnight, and will conclude with a full fireworks display—as if it being in NYC for New Year’s Eve weren’t exciting enough. Sign up here.
10. Resolution 5K — Denver, Colorado
Now in its 33rd year, this race is Denver’s oldest New Year’s Eve event. It starts at noon so you’ll be able to enjoy scenic views of beautiful Denver while you run. Sign up here.
