Running to Inspire
new york road runners

The New York Road Runners was pioneered by Ted Corbitt in 1952. As one of the leading non-profit organizations for runners, it has created many programs dedicated to track and field. For over 59 years, the organization has used its goals with a mission to help and inspire people through running in New York City’s five boroughs. It has created events, races, local outreach programs, and youth programs to inspire runners of the future. In addition, NYRR is the main organizer for the New York City Marathon.

NYRR has created the RUNCENTER as a place for innovation, training, and education. The center strives on helping runners of all ages and abilities with programs to improve health and wellbeing. Serving as the headquarters for NYRR services, the center sells merchandise for upcoming races and hosts many runner-related programs and events. The center also has the Run Hub, which provides services and innovative equipment for budding track stars.
