NYRR Group Training

Welcome to NYRR Group Training, with sessions for runners in all five boroughs of New York City.

Geared toward runners of all levels, from newcomers to experienced competitive racers, these workouts offer coaching, camaraderie, and the inspiration that comes from running with others. Whether your goal is to become a runner, to run your first race, or to set a personal best, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere and coaches who encourage you to pursue your goals and have fun. 

NYRR Group Training will help you get stronger and faster with your choice of seven different types of weekly sessions:

  • Turnover Tuesdays, which focus on interval training (faster short runs with rest intervals between them).
  • Mashup Wednesdays, which offer a variety of interval and tempo workouts.
  • Track Wednesdays, which concentrate on speed intervals. (On hold for Winter 2019–2020; will resume in Spring 2020)
  • Staten Island Speedwork Wednesday, which features workouts designed to help you run faster. (On hold for Winter 2019–2020; will resume in Spring 2020)
  • Tempo Thursdays, which primarily feature tempo runs (steady runs at a challenging effort)
  • Flex Day Fridays, which feature recovery-style runs, mental preparation for upcoming races, and different aspects of training such as flexibility, meditation, mobility, strength, and nutrition to supplement hard workouts on other days.
  • Weekend Long Runs, which features coach-led runs on the streets of NYC in the weeks leading up to key NYRR races throughout the year. Runners are divided into compatible groups based on their experience, including results in recent NYRR races when applicable. In a mutually supportive and inspiring environment, you’ll meet like-minded runners and new training partners. (No more loneliness of the long-distance runner!)

    Special Groups

    Fundamentals/Run-Walk Group
    In a fun and supportive environment, this separate section of Group Training welcomes new runners, those returning to the sport, and those who have yet to run a mile in less than 13 minutes. Over the course of the eight-week session, runners will be given all the tools they need to progress to a 30-minute nonstop run. No experience is required, and lots of encouragement will be offered.

    United Airlines NYC Half Long Runs
    Are you training for the United Airlines NYC Half, or another half-marathon in that time-frame? You’ll definitely like our Weekend Long Run program! Geared specifically toward the United Airlines NYC Half, these coach-led runs will meet in Manhattan and Brooklyn, with many runs along the race course itself, to give you the mileage and the motivation to run your best half-marathon in March. The runs will be coached to accommodate those who run 11 minutes per mile or faster for a long training run (not for a race). The program will start with a five-mile run and build to a peak run of ten miles.

    Bag check will not be offered for these workouts.
