Over the past 55-plus years, we have grown from a local running club to a global champion of the running movement. We are the world’s premier community running organization, and our efforts and events serve all runners and active individuals, from beginners to professional athletes: the young, the elderly, and the underserved of all abilities.
We impact the lives of over 430,000 people annually, from New Yorkers throughout the five boroughs to runners around the world, through a wide variety of events and programs for people of all ages and abilities.
It is our unique nonprofit model, which teams contributions from corporate, foundation, and individual donors with earned income from our best-in-class events, that makes all our efforts possible.
Together with the help of all of NYRR’s members, supporters, participants, and partners, we’re working hard to fulfill our mission of giving all people everywhere a reason to run. Today, tomorrow, and for life.
