What is an NYRR Virtual Race?

A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked at your convenience during a specified period of time. To participate in NYRR Virtual Racing, create your free Strava account, sign up for a race, and run or walk the distance of the race on a course you select wherever you are.

Visit the NYRR Virtual Racing page to learn more about how to run a virtual race with NYRR and Strava and visit our FAQ page if you have any additional questions.


Proceeds support NYRR’s mission to help and inspire people through running, and benefit NYRR’s youth and community programs, so you can feel good about completing a race while doing some good as well.
