Experience Italy and celebrate the Festa della Repubblica in Central Park at the Italy Run by Nutella Cafe. This event will bring a touch of green, white, and red to the heart of New York City. You will also discover some of Italy's newest innovations.

Bring your friends and family to join NYRR and Nutella Cafe as we experience some of the best innovations and tastiest treats.

Nutella Cafe New York officially opened on November 14, 2018. The revolutionary eatery brought the ultimate Nutella experience across the ocean. For the first time, fans could step into the world of Nutella and experience the special moments, one-of-a-kind recipes, and collectible merchandise only found at the Nutella Cafe. On May 31, the experience comes to Central Park with this five-miler followed by a post-race festival.

Calling all Italians! For the third consecutive year, the fastest Italian runner will be honored at the awards ceremony after the race, The award is dedicated to Leonardo Cenci, a great Italian runner who participated in the 2016 and 2017 TCS New York City Marathon as well as the first Italy Run by Ferrero. He sadly passed away in 2019 before we could complete the second edition. He was such a New Yorker that his legacy will stay with us forever through this special award.
