Founded in 2009 by career middle of the packer Steve Lastoe, NYCRUNS quickly became an important resource for local runners seeking out information about races and running clubs in the New York Metropolitan Area. Soon after, we began offering race registration and club management services. NYCRUNS now reaches 30,000 or more local runners every month and is a valuable tool for connecting runners, running clubs, and race directors.
In 2011, NYCRUNS began offering race timing and management services while launching several races of its own. Course Director Michael Ring and Logistics Director David Halloran came on board and The Team’s efforts culminated with the inaugural Brooklyn Marathon November 18th.
In 2012, NYCRUNS launched numerous races while developing into a state of the art timing and race management company. In July 2012, responding to an overwhelming amount of demand from clients (particularly nonprofits) eager to launch their own races and our own desire to produce the best races possible, NYCRUNS announced “Produced By NYCRUNS” – our moniker for events we work on that meet our highest quality standards. Amongst these, are The Yonkers Marathon & Half Marathon, The McCarren 5K and The Take Your Base 5 Miler. In 2013 continued blazing trails with the launch of The Central Park Marathon & Half Marathon.
