Rising New York Road Runners, NYRR’s new youth program and events platform, is built to develop movement skills in kids through a mix of running and fitness activities. The program is designed for students to build their motivation, their confidence, and the desire to be physically active for life.
Rising New York Road Runners is an evolution of our existing youth efforts: It continues and enhances our free youth programs in schools, after-school programs, and community centers nationwide, as well as our free events in New York City.
Rising New York Road Runners serves kids in NYC and nationwide, from pre-K through 12th grade.
Rising New York Road Runners’ curriculum is based on the latest athletic research, on the concepts of physical literacy and long-term athlete development. Any person can achieve physical literacy; it just takes the right environment to develop the confidence and motivation needed for long-term success.
