NYRR Midnight Run


This event is part of our 9+1 program for 2015, so complete the race, or volunteer, and you'll get credit in this calendar year toward the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon.

Kick off the New Year at the Midnight Run! Join the fun and celebrate with music and dancing (starting at 10:00 p.m.) as 2015 comes to a close. With a countdown to midnight beginning at 11:59 p.m., the four-mile unscored run will begin on the stroke of midnight, as will a spectacular fireworks display to light up the night and the start of 2016. 

Please review our enhanced security measures.

Use MTA Trip Planner to plan your trip.

If you bike to the race, please follow our bike parking guidelines.

All race information is subject to change.
