Join NYRR in Central Park for this 15K that celebrates the arrival of spring and can serve as test of your long-distance fitness, a solid training run, or a tune-up for a spring marathon.
This is a "classic" race that brings back the feel—and the pricing—of our events of yesteryear. The entry fee is $10 in all categories, and there are no T-shirts, no physical awards (award winners will be listed on our website as usual), and no post-race activities. The race is timed and scored, but it is not a marathon qualifier and it has a reduced field size.

Celebrate health and longevity at this four-mile race in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Namesake Al Gordon exemplified NYRR’s motto, Run for Life. A standout track runner in college, Gordon had an 80-year career in finance and was an NYRR board member and benefactor. He started running marathons in his 80s and exercised regularly until the end of his life in 2009—at age 107. Lace up in Gordon's honor!

You’re not just an armchair quarterback. On February 2, get your own game on! Start the big day by testing the strength and accuracy of your arm in the Longest Throw contest starting at 8:00 a.m. Then run four miles in Central Park to burn off some pre-game energy. Wear your favorite team’s jersey to show your spirit, and make your choice for the Big Game’s champion by running under their banner near the 2-mile mark on the 102nd Street Transverse. After competing with your arm and then with your legs, you’ll have earned that seat to watch the game!

New this year, this race will honor the late NYRR president and New York City Marathon co-founder, Fred Lebow (1932-1994). The course is two-plus loops of Central Park, which can be a challenge in January! Join the mid-winter fun and camaraderie—and perhaps kick off your training for a spring marathon. You'll have lots of good-spirited company.

Make good on your New Year’s running resolution by taking part in the Joe Kleinerman 10K!

Take on the challenge of this chilly 10K through beautiful Central Park.

Formerly known as Coogan's Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K, we've changed the name of this race to truly celebrate the vibrant neighborhood in which it takes place.
Upper Manhattan's diverse and picturesque Washington Heights neighborhood provides the backdrop for this 5K. On a hilly course that circles Fort Tryon Park and the historic Cloisters, runners are serenaded by musical groups playing—you guessed it—salsa, blues, and Irish folk music, plus gospel, merengue, and jazz!
