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 of its own while developing into a state of the art timing and running event management company.

This year, NYCRUNS will produce over 40 races of our own and 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.

As a 6 year old company, we’re only getting started. NYCRUNS produces running events of the highest quality, and our goal is to be best in class in every possible way. If that sounds like what you’d like in a running event – you’ve come to the right place.

Please contact us at theteam@NYCRUNS.com if we can be of any assistance.
