Kick off the New Year at the Midnight Run! Join the fun and celebrate as 2019 comes to a close. With a countdown to midnight beginning at 11:59 p.m., the four-mile run will begin on the stroke of midnight, as will a spectacular fireworks display to light up the night and the start of 2020.

We’ll have music and dancing beginning at 10:00 p.m. at Race Day Central, near the Bandshell in Central Park. All runners will receive a shirt and glow armband!

Please note: Your 9+1 credit goes toward entry into the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon.

Race Day Festivities

Warm up with a complimentary hot chocolate or coffee when you stop by the NYRR RUNCENTER between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to pick up your race number for the NYRR Midnight Run.

Live Results

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Twitter.
