At NYRR, we’re a community of runners who know that the NYC Half is about more than running 13.1 miles. It’s also about helping runners overcome challenges, aid in recovery, run for charity, or run their personal best. This year’s race is “More than a Run,” offering runners and their families, friends, and fans ways to get involved, give back, and have fun.
Support Downtown with Run the City
Get special deals and discounts to Shop, Dine, and Play, along the course and off! You can save on running gear, get discounted tickets to Broadway shows, refuel at restaurants, and more! Plus, this year, you’ll be helping to support participating businesses in Lower Manhattan still recovering post-Sandy.
