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.

Fall Cross Country

Join us for a fun fall series of races for kids ages 7-18 in Bronx and Staten Island. 

How to Register Your Child

For fall cross country, you can register your child through If you need help registering your child, click here. Race fees vary from free to $10.

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.
