Leaders and Team

At NYRR, running is a team sport. Every athlete who crosses the finish line is supported by dozens, if not hundreds of friends and family members. In the same way, everything that we do as an organization represents the efforts of many talented individuals and groups pulling together to turn a shared vision into reality. The core is our staff, 145 strong. Their energy, dedication, and passion match that of the best athletes in the world. They are “A” players who bring their best game to work every day, enabling our success and helping us to fulfill our mission. Every single one is a contributor and a key to our success and ability to fulfill our purpose and live up to our vision. Our team is also supported by thousands of volunteers, multiple New York City agencies led by Mayor de Blasio, our sponsors and partners, and our board of directors. We were thrilled in 2011 when the New York City Marathon was named “Sports Event of the Year” by SportsBusiness Journal and honored by the Gabarron Foundation—such recognition motivates us every day to give everyone a reason to run.
