RACING WITH THE NEW YORK HARRIERS

We pride ourselves on being one of the most competitive teams in NYC. In 2016, in the top division (Open A) of the New York Road Runners club points race series, our women’s team ranked 6th out of 14 teams, and our men ranked 9th out of 12 teams. In a community of over 200 running clubs in the NYC and metro area, the New York Harriers are recognized as fierce competitors in the racing scene.
 
Our members also vie for points in an intra-team competition, the Runner of the Year series, with coveted annual awards that are determined by participation and excellence in these races. Our team race roster is primarily an amalgamation of NYRR races and our own Harriers 5K
