Don’t see your park?

Thank you for contacting NYRR Open Run about bringing Open Run to your home park. We hope to expand to 4-6 more New York City parks each year. New Open Run locations will need to have a strong community support, bathrooms, water fountains, and at least one mile of paved course. We appreciate your interest in bringing Open Run to your park and we will be in touch with you soon.

Volunteer with Open Run

Open Run is a community-based program, designed to be led by members of each home park community. We ask that community members volunteer once a quarter, or four times a year. Without volunteer support Open Run would not be possible.

FAQs

NYRR Open Run is a community-based, volunteer-led running initiative - bringing free weekly runs and walks to local neighborhood parks, across all 5 boroughs of NYC.
Open Run starts at different times in different locations. Check the schedule to see when Open Run starts in your local park.
Right now, Open Run is in seven NYC Parks: Inwood Hill Park in Manhattan, Silver Lake Park and Conference House Park in Staten Island, Astoria Park in Queens, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Marine Park in Brooklyn, and St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx. We will be launching new parks shortly, please see our schedule of parks to check if we are in your area at here. If you would like to see Open Run in your local park, please email us at openrun@nyrr.org
Absolutely! We welcome all dogs at Open Run, as long as they are on a leash to comply with NYC Parks regulations as well as for the safety of the other participants.
Please! We welcome all ages at Open Run. Please start toward the back and be mindful of other Open Run participants and park users.
We won’t say it is a requirement, but isn’t it just more fun to run with friends? Bring as many friends as you can—all are welcome at Open Run.
Yes, you can.  We ask that you run with you kids if they cannot complete the distance on their own. Important: A parent/guardian must also sign a waiver before any child under age 18 can participate.
You can sign up in advance at openrun.nyrr.org or you can register on site at your park. Signing up online in advance will speed your check-in. Either way, we’ll need a signed waiver before you can participate.
