New York Road Runners Newsletters

Series I contains an incomplete run of newsletters published by New York Road Runners (NYRR) between 1959 and 2015. Published under several names, the NYRR newsletter was America’s oldest publication on running. First published as the Road Runners Club, New York Association Newsletter (1959-1977), it was briefly named the New York Road Runners Club Newsletter before transitioning to a magazine format as New York Running News (1979-1997). In August/September 1997, the title was changed again to New York Runner (1997-2015). Over time, the newsletter has undergone various format changes, beginning as an in-house typed newsletter published by NYRR founder Ted Corbitt to a newspaper format in the 1970s and finally as a magazine. From Fall 2014 – Fall 2015, New York Runner was also published in digital format and available via NYRR's website. New York Runner ceased publication following the Fall 2015 issue. Volume and issue numbering of newsletters is inconsistent and titling reflects the original numbering.

The newsletters contain a variety of information including: race results; training tips for runners; local club news; and profiles of NYRR members and elite runners. Newsletters from the 1960s also contain early membership rosters. The official New York City Marathon guide/program as well as the Marathon Results magazine were typically published as issues of the newsletter and contain the complete finisher list. This series also contains several issues of New York Running News and New York Runner labeled as editorial copies, some of which include editorial annotations.
