Boogie down in the Bronx with a 10-mile race through this vibrant New York City borough. With a new race title sponsor this year, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile promises to be an even bigger and better event for all runners, their friends, and their family.
And friends and family don't need to wait on the sidelines, either: Bring them out for the New Balance Bronx 5K, so they can start the morning off with a quick 3.1 miles.
The 2016 New Balance Bronx 10 Mile is part of NYRR's Five-Borough Series: Run New York. Five Boroughs. One City. The NYRR Five-Borough Series showcases our renewed commitment to the individuals and communities in each borough. More than just five races, the Five-Borough Series—the United Airlines NYC Half, the Airbnb Brooklyn Half, the Queens 10K, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, and the Staten Island Half—is a celebration of what makes each borough unique, inspiring, and an amazing place to get out and get moving!

|Finish Time||Pace Per Mile|
The New Balance Bronx 10 Mile starts on the Grand Concourse between and McClellan and 167th streets, and finishes on East 161st Street near Macombs Dam Park and Yankee Stadium.
Miles 1–4: Start by heading North on the Grand Concourse. At about 3.5 miles, turn left onto Mosholu Parkway. At the four-mile mark, near Goulden Avenue, make a U-turn on Mosholu Parkway heading east towards the New York Botanical Gardens. After reaching the Botanical Gardens, head west on Mosholu Parkway, back toward the Grand Concourse.
Mile 5: Continue west on Mosholu Parkway until you reach the Grand Concourse, where you will turn left.
Mile 6–9: Continue south along the Grand Concourse.
Mile 9–10: Pass the starting line and continue past Joyce Kilmer Park. At East 161st Street, turn right and follow the road toward the finish line.
Time Limit: Please keep in mind that this course does have a time limit of 2 hours and 17:30 minutes. In the interest of safety, any participant who is unable to maintain a 13:45-per-mile pace throughout the race (2:17:30 projected finishing time) will be picked up along the course, starting at approximately mile 6, and transported to the finish. The time it takes for the last runner to cross the start line will be added to the overall 2:17:30 time limit, ensuring all participants a 13:45-per-mile pace. NYRR thanks you in advance for your cooperation with this policy.
Numbers (which include your timing tag) and New Balance technical T-shirts for adults and kids may be picked up at the NYRR Running Annex at 322 Columbus Avenue (between West 75th and West 76th streets). Number pickup is offered Monday through Saturday for this race during the following hours:
Show the QR code from your race confirmation email or your My NYRR account to pick up your race materials. Please pick up during the week to avoid crowds on race day. Race-day lines may impact your ability to get to the start on time. Shirt size is subject to availability; please note that shirts may not be available at race-day pickup.
Check back soon for information about picking up materials on race day.
If you're unable to pick up your race materials, a friend or family member can pick up for you; the person will need your QR code (printed or digitally) and will need to know your T-shirt size. This policy is in effect only for our weekly races, not for the United Airlines NYC Half or the TCS New York City Marathon.
Celebrate your finish with New Balance and DJ Kool Herc at the post-race festival! Fun, social photo opps will be available featuring Snapchat and Luster Instagram printers. The festival will also feature local Bronx highlights and food trucks, too, so be sure to stop by!
Awards will be available to the top three men and women overall, as well as in age and gender groups as explained in this article. A list of all award winners will be posted in the results for each race.
