Numbers (which include your timing tag) and T-shirts may be picked up at the NYRR RUNCENTER at 320 West 57th Street (between Eighth and Ninth avenues) on the following dates:
Show the QR code from your race confirmation email or your My NYRR account to pick up your race materials. Please pick up during the week to avoid crowds on race day. Race-day lines may impact your ability to get to the start on time. Shirt sizes are subject to availability; please note that shirts may not be available at race-day pickup.
If you're unable to pick up your race materials, a friend or family member can pick up for you; the person will need your QR code (printed or digitally). This policy is in effect only for our weekly races, and not for the TCS New York City Marathon.
On race day, pickup will be at Race-Day Central at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m for the walk. If you pick up on race day, please be sure to allow yourself enough time to get from Race-Day Central to the start.
Bag check, located on Center Road in Central Park, will be open from 7:30 to 11:00 a.m. If you wish to check a bag, please allow additional time for bag check and security.
Plan to stop by the Naumberg Bandshell for the post-race festival, featuring entertainment, a prize drawing, and a presentation of medals for all finishers, including kids.
