Since 1958, NYRR has grown from a local running club to the world’s premier community running organization. NYRR’s mission is to help and inspire people through running, and together with the help of our NYRR members, supporters, participants, and partners, we work hard every day to fulfill that goal. Rest assured that with every stride we take, we’re focused on making as big an impact as we can on community, youth, charity, and every individual runner. NYRR’s premiere event, the TCS New York City Marathon, is the largest marathon in the world and held annually on the first Sunday in November. The race features over 50,000 runners from the world’s top professional athletes to a vast range of competitive, recreational, and charity runners.
