Welcome to NYRR Group Training, with sessions for runners in all five boroughs of New York City.
Geared toward runners of all levels, from newcomers to experienced competitive racers, these workouts offer coaching, camaraderie, and the inspiration that comes from running with others. Whether your goal is to become a runner, to run your first race, or to set a personal best, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere that encourages you to pursue your goals and have fun.
NYRR Group Training will help you get stronger and faster with your choice of five different types of weekly sessions:
Runners are divided into compatible groups based on their experience, including results in recent New York Road Runners races when applicable. In a mutually supportive and inspiring environment, you’ll meet like-minded runners and new training partners. (No more loneliness of the long-distance runner!)
Every NYRR Group Training workout begins with a warm-up (including running technique work) and ends with a strength-and-flexibility component.
In a fun and supportive environment, this separate section of Group Training welcomes new runners, those returning to the sport, and those who have yet to run a mile in less than 13 minutes. Over the course of the eight-week session, runners will be given all the tools they need to progress to a 30-minute nonstop run. No experience is required, and lots of encouragement will be offered.
Weekend Long Run Group
Do you have an upcoming goal race or are you looking to keep your base mileage high as winter approaches? Join our weekend long run program, where we meet at various locations throughout the five boroughs to run 6-11 miles. Workouts are coached to accommodate those who run up to 11 minutes per mile or faster for a long training run. Please note: Bag check will not be offered for these workouts.
In an effort to accommodate our runners and coaches’ schedules, we have decided to shorten this October session to a five-week “Express Session.” There will be no workouts on the following Saturdays:
Check back later this fall for 2019 session dates.
All workouts will last about one hour. See the schedule of start dates and times.
All workouts except Weekend Long Runs include a bag-check area overseen by NYRR staff.
