Founded in 2009, NYCRUNS mission is to create the very best running events in New York City and to develop our flagship Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon into one of the most iconic running events in the world. In doing so, we want to be a relentlessly positive part of our customer’s lives; a meaningful partner to local businesses, causes, and runners; and a great employer to our diverse Team.

In 2022, NYCRUNS will stage between 15 – 20 running events in NYC (and one in New Jersey) for over 50,000 athletes. We’re based in Industry City, a hip office and retail complex in Brooklyn.

If you love running events, making people happy, and are committed to making New York City better, this could be the place for you. We’re poised for significant growth and we’re looking for the best and brightest to join us on the journey. We offer competitive salaries and benefits including health insurance, 401K, and significant PTO.

ABOUT THE POSITION

This position will report to the Director of Race Development, with the core responsibility of managing and producing a portfolio of NYCRUNS running events.

For events where you are the Race Director, you will manage all aspects of the event life cycle from conception to execution. That includes creating event plans, communicating with other team members and vendors, securing necessary permits, and coordinating with our warehouse operations and customer service teams to ensure a smooth event life cycle and execute a world class running event.

For events where you are not the RD, you will provide operational support by serving as lead (start, course, finish, or festival) operating under another race director.

Beyond that, you’ll work towards developing new standards and maintaining current ones to maximize operational efficiencies and improve events. Based on your specific abilities and interests, other responsibilities will accrue. An interest in the business or technical side of the endurance business will be a significant asset.
