The NYRR Youth Jamborees presented by Tata Consultancy Services are an excellent place to learn about track and field. These free, day-long events are held two times a year in premier New York City athletic facilities, including the New Balance Track & Field Center at the Armory in upper Manhattan and Icahn Stadium on Randall's Island. Children of all ages can participate in running, jumping, or throwing events—no experience necessary!
The next NYRR Youth Jamboree presented by Tata Consultancy Services will be held on October 29, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. at the New Balance Track and Field Center at the Armory. View a schedule of events for the fall Jamboree.

Organization and Schedule
Youth Jamborees are divided by grade:
Jamborees are split into two sessions:
Please register in advance through My NYRR. At this time, event-day registration is not available.
Upon completion of their race or field event, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers receive ribbons corresponding to their place. All other finishers will receive participant ribbons.
Youth participants should wear clothes comfortable to run in, such as shorts or sweatpants, T-shirts, and sneakers. They will be provided a T-shirt at registration which they can wear that day. Spikes are NOT allowed.
There is a free parking lot located right outside Icahn Stadium. At the Armory, street parking near the facility may be difficult to find and may require paying for a meter. A good option is Riverside Drive just south of 165th Street. Private paid parking is at 165th Street and Fort Washington Avenue. Unfortunately, we cannot provide reimbursement for parking.
