Mission Statement

New York Road Runners began providing youth programs in 1998. The foremost running organization in the world, NYRR's premier event is the ING New York City Marathon. NYRR’s running-based youth programs promote children’s physical fitness, character development, and personal achievement in under-served communities. Our youth programs currently serve as many as 100,000 children a week in hundreds of schools and community centers. Having proven successful in New York City, the programs are now being established across the United States and in Africa.
