Please note: This race is now a TCS New York City Marathon-qualifying event. Complete this race and it will go toward your 9+1 guaranteed entry to the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon. Already entered the event? We will add this event to your 9+1 status when you complete the race.
NYRR is celebrating our community and 20 years of free youth running in Central Park at the NYRR Summer Community Run. This inaugural event is perfect for all ages, with waves for runners, walkers, and families with strollers, to encourage participation by all.
Take on a 1.5-mile course on the lower loop of Central Park and then enjoy the post-race festival full of fun family-oriented activities.
Note: Please be advised that the age minimum for this race is 8 years old, as this aligns with our current age-restrictions policy.
Register for the stroller-only wave here. Please be sure to register all individuals who will be participating on race day—including those little ones in the stroller!
Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and get unofficial results right after the race
