Event Hero

Training

Training for an endurance event is long and challenging. Team for Kids supports our runners every step of the way! From professional coaching support to the camaraderie of your teammates, we help you achieve your goals.

 

Coaches

We’ve assembled an elite team of coaches to answer your questions every step of the way. Our coaching team builds training plans, leads group runs, and supports our runners along the way.

 

Training Plans

Training plans customized to your race are available for beginner, intermediate, and experienced runners for all of our marathon teams and the Airbnb Brooklyn Half and United Airlines NYC Half teams.

Group Runs

Running with your teammates will keep you motivated. Group training runs are offered for the TCS New York City Marathon, Bank of America Chicago Marathon, BMW Berlin Marathon, Airbnb Brooklyn Half, and United Airlines NYC Half. Most runs meet in Manhattan’s Central Park, with weekend runs varying location throughout NYC depending on distance.

 

Out of Town Runner

Many of our team members do not live in New York City. We work to make sure that the Team for Kids experience is just as fun, personal, and meaningful for our runners not able to join us for team activities in NYC. We work to connect runners with other teammates in their area and provide social media forums for runners from all over to connect with each other. Contact [email protected] to get connected!
