Race-Week Coat Drive

To honor Ted Corbitt's commitment to community health and wellness, NYRR will host a coat drive at the NYRR RUNCENTER featuring the NB Run Hub during the week leading up to the race. On race day, coats can be dropped off at Race-Day Central from 7:00 to 11:15 a.m. New York Cares will collect all donations at the end of the race.

Live Results

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
