"The first Womens Olympic Marathon saw a courageous move by young Joan Benoit of the Unites States. A few months removed from surgery she dared the field (and herself) to follow an early blistering pace. 1984 LA Olympics. Epic."
This group's mission is to encourage women of all ages, and backgrounds, from newbies to the more experienced, to Run! Get fit! Have fun! Network! Develop friendships with others running in the pack. Support and cheer each other at the starts and finishes not just in races but while training together…
We have weekly team runs all year round, offer support & workshops for new runners, and participate in numerous races in and outside of NYC, sponsored by New York Road Runners (NYRR) and other organizations, from 5K charity run/walks to marathons.
We have over a 100 K.O. Runners.
"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." - John Bingham
Whether your goal is to run a marathon or to run to loose weight and stay in shape join us in building a team of like minded women.
