Our commitment to free running for kids began in January 1999 with 20 students in an after-school program at the public school in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Twenty years later, our youth commitment has grown to serve nearly 250,000 students ages 2-18 in all five boroughs and across the nation.
As we continue our yearlong celebration of 20 years of free youth running, the fifth annual Rising New York Road Runners Youth Invitational at the TCS New York City Marathon took place November 3, 2019, with hundreds of Rising New York Road Runners youth running the final portion of the TCS New York City Marathon course and finishing at the finish line.
