NYRR’s Virtual Racing platform, powered by Strava, is transforming organized racing as we know it. Freed from geographical limits, runners from around the globe can all take part in the same race—in new and exciting ways. Since the launch in January 2018, more than 57,000 people from more than 130 countries around the world have participated in the series.
Now, even when we run alone, we run together. Because no matter where we start, we all end on the same leaderboard.
Greatness runs through all of us. And with NYRR Virtual Racing, you can see how you and your route stack up against the rest of the running world.
