Patricia, Family Membership

My whole family belongs to NYRR—my husband and I run weekly races, and every year my son and I run the TCS New York City Marathon together (well, we start together). We are always amazed by NYRR's flawless execution of events involving thousands of people. The efforts of NYRR's staff and hundreds of volunteers highlight their strong commitment to members, and we're happy to be part of it all.
