Records in this series document NYRR’s media monitoring efforts, beginning with loose original press clippings from newspapers and magazines collected by Burrelle’s media monitoring service to bound volumes prepared by public relations firms, including Edelman and Rubenstein Communications. Results from media monitoring activities were provided to NYRR in the form a bound report, which have been referred to over time as clip books, media wrap-up reports, or media coverage reports. The reports contain photocopies or print-outs of newspaper, magazine, and online media coverage.
Other races covered in this series include: the New York City Half Marathon, L’Eggs Mini Marathon, New York Mini 10K, Fifth Avenue Mile, Healthy Kidney 10K, Empire State Building Run-Up, and the NYRR Millrose Games.
