If you love running events, making people happy, and are committed to making New York City better, this could be the place for you.

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.
