Join us for the NYRR New York Mini 10K, a race just for women! As the world’s original women-only road race founded in 1972 and named for the miniskirt, it empowers women of all ages and fitness levels to come together, be active and accomplish a running milestone alongside some of the greatest runners in the world. Every woman who registers for the race will receive a special performance tank top at bib pickup, and every finisher will receive a medal. Together, we run.
