The NYRR NYC 60K is a race with a long history for New York-area ultrarunners and an illustrious list of former champions. Nothing builds up an appetite for Thanksgiving turkey like running nine loops around Central Park. After 37.2 miles, you’ll even be ready to tackle those leftovers! Please make sure that you're properly trained for this challenging distance.
Join Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC) in the spirit of the late NYRR president Fred Lebow (1932−1994) and all others who have fought brain cancer and brain tumors at the annual Join The Voices Run/Walk. The event features a five-mile run, a scenic walk, kids' races, and a fun family festival with music, games, and more! Help raise funds for VABC and promote their mission: to find a cure for brain cancer by advancing scientific research, increasing awareness within the medical community, and supporting patients, their families, and caregivers afflicted with this devastating disease.
This race honors Ted Corbitt (1919-2007), the first president of New York Road Runners, the first African American to compete in the Olympic marathon, and an ultramarathon pioneer who ran more than 200,000 miles in his lifetime!
This festive family favorite is more than just a road race, it's also a celebration and a fundraiser for NYRR's youth programs. Not only does your entry fee snag you jingle bells for your sneakers, a pair of custom knee-high tech socks to match, and post-race hot chocolate, the proceeds from this race fund youth running programs in schools all over the city!
This event will open for registration soon. Please keep an eye on social media and our site for announcements.
