Diplo is Performing the Finish Line After Nike’s 5K through the LES on Sunday
When thousands of marathon runners stream over the Manhattan Bridge to Pier 36 on Sunday evening, they will be treated to a live show by EDM fixture Diplo.
As previously reported, Nike is hosting an Earth Day race – dubbed Nike GO NYC 5K – that runs through the Lower East Side. It’s the second such event to do so in the last couple months. (The NYC Half Marathon attracted 20,000 participants in mid-March.) Route begins in Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn, continues over the Manhattan Bridge to Canal Street, down Allen/Pike Street, and over to the finish line at Basketball City on Pier 36.
This particular marathon begins at 7pm on Sunday (April 22). Runners will finish the race with Diplo headlining the intimate after-party.
Admission fees collected to join the race apparently go toward benefiting an unknown group of Community organizations.
Are you in? Nike NYC is running the Manhattan Bridge at night and ending with a private @diplo performance at the finish line. Entry fee supports local community organizations—so choose go, give back, and celebrate your miles! #choosegonyc
