Make good on your New Year’s running resolution by taking part in the Joe Kleinerman 10K! Kleinerman, a founding member of NYRR, the longtime coach of the Millrose Athletic Association, and a beloved NYRR employee until his death in 2003 at age 91, was a true competitor. Take on the challenge of this chilly 10K through beautiful Central Park. The race pays tribute to Kleinerman and also benefits a scholarship fund in his name for scholastic runners; $1 of your registration fee goes directly to the fund, and additional donations can be made during registration.
Use MTA Trip Planner to plan your trip.

• Thursday, January 8, 1:00–7:00 p.m.
• Friday, January 9, 1:00–7:00 p.m.
Shirt size is subject to availability. Please pick up on Thursday or Friday, if possible, to avoid crowds. On race day, pickup will be at Race Day Central in Central Park (see course map) from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. Please be sure to allow yourself enough time to get from Race Day Central to the start.
If you're unable to pick up your race materials, a friend or family member can pick them up for you; the person will need to know your full name and date of birth. This policy is only for our weekly races, not for our marquee events.
During cold winter months and in wet weather, stickers do not adhere well to the clear bags provided for baggage check. Rather than cracking the peel and adhering the sticker to the outside of the bag, runners who check a bag on race day should slip the sticker inside their clear bag with the number facing outward.
Age-group award winners will be notified via email after results are finalized.
