This year, Team UN will run for Climate Action: A Race We Can Win. Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent and is disrupting national economies, affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.

Last year, a total of 10,859 runners braved a cold Saturday morning and dashed through Midtown Manhattan at the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K race. Of those runners, 400 UN staff, interns, ambassadors and delegates participated in the race, promoting the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Come help us raise awareness about climate action at the legendary 5K race and help make this world a better place for everyone!
