About Us

Founded in 2009 by career middle of the packer Steve Lastoe, NYCRUNS.com and the NYCRUNS newsletter quickly became an important resource for local runners seeking out information about races and running clubs in the New York Metropolitan Area. NYCRUNS is now the leading local online resource of this type and a valuable tool for connecting runners, running clubs, and race directors.

In 2011, NYCRUNS began offering race timing and management services while launching several races of its own. The Team’s efforts culminated with the inaugural Brooklyn Marathon on November 18th. 2012 would see this effort really catch fire as NYCRUNS launched numerous races or it’s own while developing into a state of the art timing and running event management company.

NYCRUNS is now the largest running event management company in the New York Metropolitan Area. This year we will produce over 40 races of our own and many on behalf of clients. Our registration and timing services will backbone dozens of others, among them some of the largest and most important in the region. NYCRUNS clients include The Empire State Building Realty Trust, Google, Citibank, The New York Jets, New York University, Columbia University, Weill Cornell, The United States Military Academy at West Point, The Brooklyn Cyclones, and many other world class organizations.

Going forward, the challenge for us is to make all of these races the best they can possibly be. We’re committed to bringing big race quality to the smallest races and small race ambiance to the biggest. We’re also committed to bringing the Brooklyn Marathon to the streets in April, 2016.
