NYRR Midnight Run


This event is part of our 9+1 program for 2016. Runners who finish the race, or volunteer, will receive credit in this calendar year toward the 2017 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 2016 comes to a close. With a countdown to midnight beginning at 11:59 p.m., the four-mile run will begin on the stroke of midnight, as will a spectacular fireworks display to light up the night and the start of 2017.
