The North Face GOGI

An iconic New York City road race taking place on the jewel of the harbor, Governors Island. A first ever 10K course on this unique 172 acre island offers a fun, fast and scenic three loop USATF course. 2010 was the inaugural year and saw 750 runners and we expect 1,000 in 2011. The race was held in partnership with the Trust for Governors Island, The North Face, Paragon Sports and USATF.

Event development and creation with Ray Fusco Inc.


This process started organically. During a team building exercise with 50 of The North Face's employees Ray Fusco Inc. was approached for ideas and insights for a potential North Face event in New York City. Providing unique experience in new event creation and development along with a keen awareness of new and exciting locations in New York Ray Fusco Inc. immediately suggested Governors Island. Taking into consideration The North Face's commitment to outdoor participation, sustainability and youth participation Ray Fusco Inc. worked with TNF to create a 10K road race with a strong kids component.
