Upcoming Races

Here’s a list of some of the upcoming races in the Greater New York area over the next several weeks – and, lo and behold, not everything is in Central Park (even the NYRR races!) A couple of others put on the schedule because they’re well worth considering. Please note, as always, that things are subject to change. (And I guarantee I’ve missed a few, so please alert me). There’s plenty of local stuff – and I’ll try to update, or call out specific events. Races that are closed out at this point (aka the NYC Half Marathon) aren’t included. At the end of the lists are some links to Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut races.
