Mini 10K to be biggest NYRR race since beginning of pandemic

NYRR races upsized

The Mastercard New York Mini 10K on 12 June will increase numbers from 1200 to 3000 expected finishers. The Front Runners LGBT Pride Run two weeks later (on 26 June) and the Achilles Hope and Possibility 4M on 10 July will each have 4250 expected finishers.

The 2021 Mastercard New York Mini 10K, the world’s original women-only road race, will be the first regularly scheduled and largest NYRR race to take place since the COVID-19 pandemic began and will follow comprehensive health and safety guidelines and procedures.

All events taking place in Central Park will operate under NYRR’s Return to Racing guidelines. Health and safety procedures were developed under the guidance of public health officials and medical experts and in partnership with the City of New York and the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation.

The Guidelines include an increased number of staggered starts, self-hydration options, hand sanitation stations, and limiting race amenities to uphold adherence to social distancing.
