Make good on your New Year’s running resolution by taking part in the NYRR Joe Kleinerman 10K! Kleinerman, a founding member of NYRR, the longtime coach of the Millrose Athletic Association, and a beloved NYRR employee until his death in 2003 at age 91, was a true competitor. Take on the challenge of this chilly 10K through beautiful Central Park.
Event hashtag: #JoeK10K—use it in your public tweets, Instagrams, and Facebook posts!
Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and get unofficial results right after the race!
The race pays tribute to Kleinerman and also benefits a scholarship fund in his name for scholastic runners; $1 of your registration fee goes directly to the fund, and additional donations can be made during registration.
The course is slightly more than one lap of Central Park’s six-mile loop.
Mile 1: Start on East Drive just south of the 102nd Street Transverse and head north around the northern end of the park through the Harlem Hills, then south on West Drive.
Mile 2: Continue through a series of three rolling hills as you pass the Reservoir on your left.
Mile 3: Enjoy a welcome downhill, followed by a flat section.
Mile 4: Pass the 72nd Street Transverse and climb a small hill to the TCS New York City Marathon finish line. Continue south around the bottom of the park and onto East Drive.
Mile 5: Pass the 72nd Street Transverse and continue north. Ascend Cat Hill and pass the Metropolitan Museum of Art on your right.
Mile 6: Pass Engineers' Gate (East 90th Street) and continue north. Shortly after the six-mile mark, turn left onto the 102nd Street Transverse and continue to the finish.
