To promote friendly competition and great relationships within our NYC running community, NBR gives out patches to members who show exceptional involvement with the club.
Our "Patch Qualifying Races" for 2019 include events organized by NBR (McCarren Park Track Meet & McCarren Park 5k!) and some held by other local running clubs. They encompass all five boroughs and include a wide range of distances, from track events to marathons.
A couple of weeks before NBR’s annual “gala” the race coordinators will ask members to submit the list of races they have done and patches will be handed out at the party.
Lead an official weekly run for 1 year or more. Does not have to be the same run, for example, you can lead 1 run for 6 months and another for 6 months. This patch is given once per person only.
Be an NBR Coordinator or Board Member for a year or more. Does not have to be one position. This patch is given once per person only.
Volunteer for 5 events and cheer for 5 races. Does not have to be consecutive or completed within 1 year. NYRR 9+1 volunteer events are not eligible.
