How do I register my children (age 17 and under) for NYRR races?

You must be 18 or older to create a My NYRR account. If you are under 18, or if you would like to purchase a race entry for someone under 18, an adult must create an account and then register the child for each race, following these steps:

  1. Sign in to My NYRR, or create a new account.

  2. Select "Races and Registration" on the left-hand toolbar. This will display a page with races that you have signed up for and any upcoming races with availability.

  3. Click "Add to Cart" to register the child for a race; repeat as needed.

  4. On the right-hand side of the screen, click "Checkout Now’ to proceed to checkout.

  5. The first field in the checkout process asks you to select who you are registering for. Click the "I am registering for" dropdown and select "My children."

  6. ​​Review your race registration details, including your projected pace, team affiliation, and shirt information, then click "Save."

  7. Click "Begin Checkout" and proceed through the checkout process, including confirming payment details.

  8. Click on "Place Your Order" to complete your race registration.

  9. Once you have completed registration, the account holder will be sent an email confirming the transaction and the race will appear in the "My Upcoming Races" section of your dashboard.
