Race Information

Now in it’s 5th year and well on it’s way to becoming one of Westchester’s premier running events, New Ro Runners welcomes seasoned competitors and those eager to try out America’s running event, The Mile!

The North Avenue Mile will test accomplished veterans of track and trail while giving new runners, kids and families the thrill of running in a professionally managed, electronically timed USATF certified one-mile road race through the heart of historic New Rochelle.

Concerned about the competition? Don’t be! You can choose whether or not you want to compete in an age appropriate competitive wave or opt in to the more relaxed family wave. See the Registration section below for details.
