Boogie down in the Bronx with a 10-mile race through this vibrant New York City borough. With title sponsor New Balance back again this year, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile promises to be an even bigger and better event for all runners, their friends, and their family.
The 2019 New Balance Bronx 10 Mile is part of NYRR's Five-Borough Series: Run New York. Five Boroughs. One City. The NYRR Five-Borough Series showcases our renewed commitment to the individuals and communities in each borough. More than just five races, the Five-Borough Series—the United Airlines NYC Half, the Popular® Brooklyn Half, the NYRR Queens 10K, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, and the NYRR Staten Island Half—is a celebration of what makes each borough unique, inspiring, and an amazing place to get out and get moving!

The New Balance Bronx 10 Mile starts on the Grand Concourse at 165th Street and finishes on East 161st Street near Macombs Dam Park and Yankee Stadium.
Miles 1–4: Start by heading north on the Grand Concourse. Just before mile 4, turn left onto Mosholu Parkway. At about 4.25 miles, near Goulden Avenue, make a U-turn on Mosholu Parkway and head east toward the New York Botanical Garden.
Mile 5–6: After reaching Marion Avenue, turn left, then left again to head west on Mosholu Parkway back toward the Grand Concourse. Continue west on Mosholu Parkway, then turn left onto the Grand Concourse.
Mile 6–9: Continue south on the Grand Concourse.
Mile 9–10: Pass the starting line and Joyce Kilmer Park. At East 161st Street, turn right and continue to the finish line.
Time Limit: In the interest of safety, and to allow Bronx streets to reopen as scheduled, any participant who is unable to maintain a 13:45-per-mile pace throughout the race (based on the time when the last runner crosses the start line) will have the opportunity to board a sweep bus, starting at approximately mile 6 for transport to the finish.
These participants may choose instead to continue running on the sidewalks, but they should be aware that fluid stations and other course amenities may not be available. These runners may not be recorded as official finishers; they can email email@example.com to request 9+1 TCS New York City Marathon qualifying credit for the race. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
Members of the NYRR Pace Team Presented by Biofreeze will guide participants toward specific goal times over the 10 miles. There will be signs in the corrals starting at 6:51 per mile. If you choose to run with a pace group, pacers—you’ll recognize them by the NYRR Pace Team Presented by Biofreeze logo and the green and blue chevron design—will carry signs that correspond with their finish times and paces.
