Club Races

Empire Runners Club events, except the Kenwood Footrace, are free to club members who preregister online for each event by the published deadline.  Club races and track meets are open to the general public.  For events other than the Kenwood Footrace, online registration generally opens 3 to 4 months before each event and closes 2 to 3 days before each event.  Club members who do not preregister online for club races must pay regular race day entry fees.

    Notes:
    This is a fun, family-friendly event, staffed entirely by volunteers. It is intended to simulate a high school track meet in tone and accuracy. It is a great way to introduce younger kids to our sport, serious athletes to test their training progress and for the old timers to relive the glory days.
    We make every attempt to keep track of times and report them properly within one week on our website. If you really want an extremely accurate guaranteed-reliable time for your personal record, please bring a friend with a timer dedicated just to you, or wear your own watch.
    Any child under 8 years old who would like to compete in an adult race must receive prior permission from the race director. 
    Registration fees are not refundable unless event is canceled.
    No dogs or other pets allowed on school property.
