NYRR offers $20,000 in grants to promote youth running & fitness

Youth fitness is one of the most critical and relevant topics in our society today, which makes it important for all of us in the endurance industry to get involved. Our friends at New York Road Runners (NYRR) are giving away $20,000 to schools and non-profit organizations that want to host youth running events. The grant is to celebrate NYRR’s latest free resource, Events to Run. Events to Run is a new youth coaching resource designed to make it easy to organize fun runs, track meets, and more.

To celebrate the launch of Events to Run, and to help you organize your athletic events this spring, NYRR is giving away 40 grants of $500 each—that’s a total of $20,000! If you would like to get involved and support youth fitness by organizing a race, submit an application for a grant that can give you the boost you need to get started.
