In 2022, NYCRUNS will produce approximately 30 running events for as many as 100,000 athletes. These events include our flagship Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon, the Newport-Liberty Half Marathon – one of the largest half marathons in New Jersey, and the storied Empire State Building Run-Up.

NYCRUNS races are accurately measured, electronically timed, and produced by a highly trained team of event and medical professionals. Our post-race festivals feature fresh New York bagels (with a shmear of course – this is New York), fresh fruit, and a vibrant atmosphere led by a great DJ.

Our goal is to give athletes the chance to win their race by providing them with the best possible experience from the time they register until the moment they see their finish line photos. In doing so, we want to be a relentlessly positive part of our customer’s lives; a meaningful partner to local businesses, local causes, and local runners; and a great employer to our diverse team of employees. NYCRUNS was built with these values in mind, and they guide us moving forward. We can’t wait to see you Win YOUR Race! www.nycruns.com
