While revelers pack Times Square on New Years Eve and wonder for hours about the next time they will see a bathroom, several Ivy Leaguers will take to Central Park for the 34th annual Emerald Nuts Midnight Run.
Among the runners in the four-miler — which starts and ends 72nd Street in the Park — will be Delilah DiCrescenzo (Columbia), Ashley Higginson (Princeton), Liam Boylan-Pett (Columbia) and Phil Cawkwell (Penn). The Emerald Nuts Run is the only Manhattan event to feature fireworks on New Year’s Eve.
The evening’s festivities also include music and dancing beginning at 10 p.m. and a costume parade and contest at 11:00. The Midnight Run has a stop for non-alcoholic champagne at the two-mile mark.
