Forever Young

RUN to log miles—and to erase them.
You defy age and expectations. You surprise yourself and inspire others. Active seniors like you want to stay in the race, and by adding some new habits to your old tricks, you absolutely can. Whether you’re maintaining an athletic lifestyle, returning to running after years off, or embarking on a new fitness adventure, NYRR can help you run—and even go for the gold—well into your golden years.
Follow our guidelines to safely stay fit:

  • 
Try to balance your enthusiasm with wisdom, adapting to the natural changes of aging.
  • Pay attention to your body’s (and your doctor’s) warning signals and don’t overdo it
.
  • Remember that running is just one part of your overall health picture. Nutrition and cross-training are important, too.

The Road Ahead

As you advance into new age groups at NYRR races, you’ll have a chance to make a fresh start—competing in new fields and setting new personal records. You’ll also get to enjoy the community from a privileged perspective: An active senior is a wise elder. As you begin (or maintain) your well-rounded fitness regimen, check out NYRR’s cross-training, strength, flexibility, and nutrition resources. We’ll help you get the most mileage out of yourself.
