NYRR Youth Running Series

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.
