Become a paid member of NYCRUNS today and you'll receive some great perks you can't get anywhere else, as well as discounts to all NYCRUNS races! Membership costs just $50. a year.
Every so often, due to circumstances beyond our control (usually weather or you know, a pandemic), we have to cancel a race. Now, if you’re registered for that race, you may request race credit for the full amount you paid. Race credit is usable for just about any NYCRUNS event and expires one year after the date of issue in most instances.
Gotta work? Gotta party to go to? We have your back. You can defer two NYCRUNS race entries for any reason as long as you do so by the Sunday night before the race (or two Sundays if the race is on a weekday). You will receive race credit equivalent to the race registration fee you paid for the race you are deferring.
If you have used up your regular deferrals, this is your next line of defense. You need a doctor’s note and we need to receive it no later than the Thursday before the race. You will receive race credit equivalent to the race registration fee you paid for the race you are deferring.
Generally, this includes just about every race you will find on our site, though there are exceptions such as The Empire State Building Run-Up.
Longer distance races (marathons, half marathons, ultras) are 10-20% off for eligible members. Shorter distance races are 10% off unless they are part of a longer distance race (such as a half marathon and a 5K paired together.)
New for 2022, this is an ongoing evolution of a virtual product we started in 2021.
This Challenge is free to all NYCRUNS members. It's a way of setting a running goal and then keeping track of it. The format will be familiar to anyone who has done a virtual race or a challenge and honestly - it's a nice way to set a goal and keep yourself honest.
In essence, the challenge is a running log and over the course of 2022, we'll be transforming it into a traditional running log format and one that directly interfaces with our race results system for races both real and virtual as well as our new marathon and half marathon training program.
Membership benefits are per account and apply to the account holder and any minor children on the account. You must maintain your membership to maintain accrued benefits.
As always, we very much appreciate your support and we look forward to seeing you Win Your Race!
