This June, NYRR turns 59 years old. Help us celebrate by donning your favorite old-school running gear and taking a walk—no, a run—down Memory Lane at the NYRR Retro 5-Miler. This is a throwback-themed race in the perfect spot—Central Park—where many iconic moments in running have occurred!

Be on the lookout for our vintage lead car, old-school running gear, and other suprises. In the spirit of historical races, the course won’t feature clocks at each mile; instead, staff will call out splits just like back in the day!

Arrive early on race day for some throwback stretches and calisthenics. We'll kick things off at 8:15 a.m. on the grass next to the corrals.

Whether this is your first race or your 500th, come out for an unforgettable day of running.
