Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
The $30,000 Zayed Bonus, courtesy of the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in honor of former UAE president Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, will be given to the first man to break 27:35 (Leonard Patrick Komon, UAE Healthy Kidney 10K, 2011) and/or the first woman to break 30:44 (Lornah Kiplagat, New York Mini 10K, 2002).

There are two types of kids' races at this event. We recommend the NYRR Youth Running Series race at the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K for kids who are older or more experienced. This 1.7-mile race for ages 7-18 begins at 11:15 a.m., is timed and scored, and comes with a souvenir T-shirt. The entry fee is $10 and registration is through My NYRR.
For younger or less experienced runners, NYRR also offers short kids' dashes for ages 2-12. These untimed, unscored runs typically range from 20 meters to 200 meters and begin at 10:30 a.m. The entry fee is $6 in advance and $8 on race day. Register through My NYRR. Please note that parents/guardians of children ages 7 and older are not permitted to enter the course; they should meet their children after their races in the reunion area.
