New York Road Runners is committed to helping and inspiring people through running. It’s never too early or too late to build confidence and desire to be active. That’s the philosophy behind our programs. Make a donation today to support our free programs.
Rising New York Road Runners is designed to motivate all kids to kickstart a lifestyle that will lift their bodies and minds to a healthy place. We teach the fundamentals—starting with hopping, skipping, and jumping—so kids can build skills toward long-term athlete development, be it in running or any other sport! Rising New York Road Runners serves kids across the country in pre-K through grade 12. It gives them access, know-how, and a love of physical activity at no cost, raising the commitment we’ve had since 1999 to providing high-quality, innovative, free youth programming.
Unifying communities, programming in neighborhood parks, and fostering a love of running—this is the impact of NYRR Open Run. All community members are welcome at this volunteer-led initiative that brings free weekly walks and runs to parks in communities across New York City’s five boroughs. Each week runners, walkers, kids, seniors, parents with strollers, those in wheelchairs, and participants with leashed dogs all join in the fun.
Staying active and socially engaged at any age has significant benefits for the body, mind, and spirit—and NYRR’s mission to help and inspire people through running has no age limit. NYRR Striders is a free, weekly, coach-led walking program, which serves adults ages 50 to 105. Taking place in senior centers, community facilities, and neighborhood parks across all five boroughs of NYC, this effort offers a supportive social environment and an opportunity to get up and get moving together.
