Kids' Races

Give your children the experience of running at a New York Road Runners event with one of our kids' races. Open to all children ages 2-12, these events provide young athletes with opportunities to race kid-friendly distances with children from their age group.

Beginning September 18, 2016, all kids' races are free.

All participants should line up for their race at least 15 minutes prior to the start.

Please note that parents/guardians of children ages 5 and older will not be permitted to enter the course during kids' races. All parents should meet their children after their races in the reunion area and must have the claim tag located on the bottom of their bib number. No child will be released to an adult without a claim tag.
