We're thrilled to launch the NYRR Youth Running Series, a brand-new initiative designed just for kids with events throughout the school year! This three-season program includes cross country, indoor track, and road running, and because the races feature kid-friendly distances ranging from three-quarters of a mile to two miles, they're perfect for youngsters of all fitness levels. Kids typically run with their age and gender group, and all races are timed and scored.
The series continues with five awesome indoor winter track and field meets for middle schoolers at the New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory in Washington Heights. (Please note that we recommend that kids who register for these events have some track running experience.)
Join us for a fun spring series of races for kids ages 7-18 in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
For winter indoor meets, you can register your child now through The Armory's website at a cost of just $15 per meet, which includes up to three events per child. Please scroll to the bottom of each individual meet page for directions on how to register for each event.
NYRR deeply appreciates the generosity of the donors who have supplied the seed funding for this new program, which will provide running events year-round for kids in New York City.
