If you have any questions, contact our R4K Team.


Run for Knowledge (R4K) is an annual fundraiser and family fun run and festival that benefits IS 289, PS 89, and PS/IS 276. 

The one-mile course starts at Wagner Park and follows the Esplanade to the Rockefeller Park. Every finisher gets a congratulatory medal and is invited to the R4K Family Festival at IS 289. There's food, carnival games, Karaoke, face painting, and much, much, more! Everyone is welcome at the party, whether or not you have run.

In addition to the fun run and post-race party, each middle school student who registers for the Run will receive a wrist band entitling them to a FREE round of mini golf and pizza at Pier 25! This is a middle school only event.

Registered participants will gather at 5:00 PM at Wagner Park (on Battery Park City Esplanade) and the Run will start promptly at 5:15 PM.

Registration Fee: $35. All participants will receive a race bag with an R4K t-shirt, bib, and race essentials. Bags will be delivered to student homerooms prior to RUN day.
