First mass NYRR event since 2019

New York Mini 10km goes ahead with 3000 runners

With a new title sponsor, a total of 3000 runners took part in the 49th edition of the Mastercard New York Mini 10km.

A women-only event which has been held since 1972 – this year with an elite field of around 30 athletes.

The starting section, in the southern part of Central Park, had been slightly modified due to Covid precautions. After the race started at 06.40 12 runners quickly got away. After passing 5km in 16:15 the lead group thinned out until only three were left at 7km and after 8km it became a head-to-head between the in-form Sarah Hall – who had won the previous (2019) edition of the race – and Viola Cheptoo. Hall kicked away with 200m to go to win by six seconds.

The first of a series of NYRR events to resume with a mass field, the Mini 10km was the first step towards the ambitious target of having 33,000 runners start in the TCS New York City Marathon on 7 November.
