NYRR Midnight Run

Neither rain nor wind could keep runners from starting 2019 on the move, as a crowd of more than 3,700 gathered in Central Park for the NYRR Midnight Run. The four-miler began at the stroke of midnight, sending runners into the new year with a 15-minute fireworks display at the start and a sparkling cider toast at the halfway mark.

Before midnight struck, runners could get into the spirit with a pre-race party on Rumsey Playfield. With a live DJ, stilt walkers, on-stage performances, and more, runners could get into the groove for their warm-up before heading into their corrals.

First to finish four miles in the new year was Luis Porto of Central Park Track Club – New Balance, completing the loop in 21:07. Breaking the tape on the women's side was Lindsay Crevoiserat of Glastonbury, CT in 23:27.

The course is the four-mile Central Park "inner loop." Check back soon for a course map.

Mile 1:Start on the 72nd Street Transverse near Bethesda Terrace and head east. Turn left (north) at East Drive and run north, ascending Cat Hill.

Mile 2:Continue north and and pass Engineers' Gate (East 90th Street). Turn left onto the 102nd Street Transverse.

Mile 3:Turn left onto West Drive and run south through a series of three rolling hills as you pass the Reservoir on your left.

Mile 4:Enjoy a downhill, then a flat section. Turn left onto the 72nd Street Transverse and finish just west of Bethesda Terrace.
