This race honors the late NYRR president and New York City Marathon co-founder, Fred Lebow (1932–1994). The course is two-plus loops of Central Park, which can be a challenge in January! Join the mid-winter fun and camaraderie—and perhaps kick off your training for a spring marathon. You'll have lots of good-spirited company, and you can enjoy classical music (Fred's favorite) at the start as well as inspiring Fred quotes along the course! Please note: This event is not a part of the 4 Out of 6 program for guaranteed entry to the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half. The NYRR Manhattan 7 Mile will be a part of the 4 Out of 6 program in 2019. Runners who completed the 2018 NYRR Fred Lebow Manhattan Half can use that race for credit toward guaranteed entry to the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half.
