Registration & Race Info

Use the link below to register for the East River Ekiden. The platform is Luma, a similar platform as Eventbrite. It is safe to click.


The cost is $200 per team and can be paid directly via the registration form. This will cover timing and jackets featuring this design by Sean Micka and produced by Bakline.


To be mixed at least two of your runners have to identify as women or nonbinary. If you’re a master’s team (all runners over 40), include that as well. 


Evil Twin Dumbo will serve as the hub for the race, and all the exchanges will be there. Evil Twin opens at 8am so it’ll also serve as a nice warm spot when you’re not running. Leg 5 will terminate at the Evil Twin Brewery in Ridgewood, where the owner, Jeppe, has offered the space to us as a fellow member of the running community and friend of East River 5000. It’ll be a great afternoon. Last year there was a food truck.


This is an unsanctioned road race, hence the use of bridges and the Greenway as much as possible. Runners accept any risk associated with running on open streets. To race, every runner will have to agree to a waiver acknowledging receipt of and agreement to the terms. Team captains can email David Alm, at, for that waiver (it cannot be uploaded here).
