The NYRR Run Center and NB RunHub were introduced in January 2017. RunBlogRun and the Shoe Addicts were there there. This is the embed of the video tour we did of the facility. It is a fun place to enjoy running, take a class, sign up for a race, and learn about the NYRR. It is part of the committment that New Balance is making to running in New York City the people of New York. Check it out, and when you go to NYC, visit the NYRR RunCenter.

The New York Road Runners RunCenter and the New Balance RunHub were introduced offiically today. RunBlogRun and the Shoe Addicts were among the media organizations there to cover the important event.
Why is the event important? As George Hirsch, Chairman of the New York Road Runners noted today, this moment was ten years in the making. Having a running center in the center of Manhattan, near Central Park, and open to all who run was key. Having a runner center that encourages the participation of young runners, means, as Tom Carleo, VP, Global Running at New Balance told us, another generation of runners is being encouraged.
This was the happy crowd at the NYRR RunCenter presser, includes NB CEO Rob DeMartini, NYRR Presidents Peter Ciaccia and Mike Capiraso, Brenda Martinez, Jenny Simpson, and Tom Carleo, VP Global Running.
This video is the intro to the New Balance RunHub and New York Road Runners Run Center, and we thought it is something that you should see! The NYRR continues to lead by example and their relationship with New Balance, as their partner in all things running is another example of how running is changing, for the better in the Big Apple.
Fred Lebow and Allan Steinfeld, I believe, would be happy with the NYRR RunCenter.
The video of the intro, gives you a pretty good idea of how the live event went…
