Coaching

New York Road Runners’ expert coaches don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all coaching philosophy. We offer a variety of training programs—NYRR Virtual Trainer, NYRR Group Training, and NYRR Team for Kids, and NYRR 1:1 Coaching—so you can choose the program that works best for you.

Using the NYRR Virtual Trainer platform, a special fitness program will be developed for you based on your age, gender, lifestyle, experience, and goals. With this program you can move at your own pace, and one-on-one e-coaching allows for easy feedback from your coach on anything from nutrition to injury prevention.

For those who thrive on a group dynamic of classes and team workouts, NYRR Group Training offers weekly speed, endurance, and beginner sessions in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Much like NYRR Group Training, NYRR Team for Kids coaches offer a great team dynamic and expert advice, all while helping you add meaning to your miles.

A personal coach can be instrumental in guiding you to becoming a faster, more confident, and stronger runner. Beginning July 10, sign up for our newest training option, NYRR 1:1 Coaching—created by runners, for runners!  
 
Once you sign up, we’ll ask you to tell us about your running history, current training, past injuries, and goals. We’ll then match you to an appropriate NYRR coach and schedule 1:1 meetings to train. During each meeting, your coach will guide you toward hitting your personal running goals. Along the way, you'll learn tips on how to improve recovery, eat right, and more. Each meeting will last approximately an hour.
 
You can register for up to five 1:1 meetings and schedule them at your convenience (pending coach availability) in parks throughout the five boroughs, as agreed upon by the runner and the coach.
 
Pricing is as follows, with the option for a discount to be applied based on the number of meetings purchased.
 

Number of Meetings NYRR Member Non-Member
1 $100 $125
2 $180 ($90/ session)        $205 ($102.50/session)

4 $320 ($80/session) $345 ($86.25/session)
5 $375 ($75/session) $400 ($80.00/session)

Every Wednesday, from 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m., our coaches offer a free, live chat on NYRR's Facebook page where you can ask them any and all training questions.  

Sign up now for the training option—or options—that works best for you!

Meet Our Team for Kids Coaches

Team for Kids' runners dedicate their participation in world class running events to building a happier and healthier future for youth nationwide. Our runners receive guaranteed entry into premier running events and professional training support, while making every mile count fundraising on behalf of NYRR Youth Programs.


A Running Start

NYRR's free online coaching resource, A Running Start, includes 83 videos that were developed to help youth coaches teach the fundamentals of running through age-appropriate games, activities, and drills. Created in collaboration with a team of expert youth coaches and exercise physiologists, these activities can be used individually, incorporated into an existing practice routine, or used to craft one's own running session.
