Founded in 1958, New York Road Runners (NYRR) is dedicated to empowering individuals of all ages and abilities -- from beginners to competitive athletes, the young and the elderly, those of means and those who have few other resources available to them -- to improve their health and wellbeing through the power of running.

Our races, community events, instruction and training resources, and youth programs give hundreds of thousands of people each year the motivation, know-how, and opportunity to start running and keep running for life. NYRR's premier event, the famed ING New York City Marathon, attracts the world's top pro runners and committed amateurs alike while also raising millions of dollars annually for charity and driving economic impact for the City.
