NYRR Central Park Spring Classic 10K

Official results have been posted. Check back soon for our race report and photo galleries from today's event.

Join New York Road Runners in Central Park for this 10K that celebrates the arrival of spring and can serve as test of your long-distance fitness, a solid training run, or a tune-up for a spring marathon.

This is a Classic Race that brings back the feel—and the pricing—of our events of yesteryear. The entry fee is $10 in all categories, and there are no T-shirts, no physical awards (award winners will be listed on our website as usual), and no post-race activities. The race is timed and scored, but it is not a marathon qualifier and it has a reduced field size. Please note: This event is open to NYRR members only. Sign up to become a member or renew your membership today!
