This June, NYRR turns 58 years old. Help us celebrate by donning your favorite old-school running gear and taking a walk—no, a run—down Memory Lane at the NYRR Retro 4-Miler. This is a throwback-themed race in the perfect spot—Central Park—where many iconic moments in running have occurred!

Be on the lookout for our vintage lead car, old-school running gear, and other suprises. In the spirit of historical races, the course won’t feature clocks at each mile; instead, staff will call out splits just like back in the day!

Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture for Runners Workshop

  • Brooklyn Athletic Club

Many runners have described how running makes them feel whole: mind, body, and spirit moving in unison. Chinese Medicine agrees. It views the individual as a whole being with the mind, the body, and the spirit, interconnected and supported by an underlying energy system. 

This talk will cover some of the basic questions you have about Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Does it hurt? Not really. Does it work? Many runners swear by it. How does it work? We’ll cover that. We’ll talk about the esoteric and practical elements of Chinese Medicine and how they can be used to create a balanced running lifestyle. And we’ll touch on some common running injuries (plantar fasciitis, IT band syndrome, hip tightness, etc) and how these can be treated with acupuncture and acupressure. Also on the menu is off-season maintenance, which will include a few delicious recipes that use Chinese herbs to address some common running ailments.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
