COVID-19 update

The past few days have continued to reinforce the severity and uncertainty of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the health and wellbeing of our race participants remains our absolute top priority.

In accordance with the recommendation of the CDC concerning the cancellation of large events for eight weeks, New York Road Runners (NYRR) has decided to cancel the 2020 SHAPE + Health Women’s Half-Marathon and the 5.8 Mile Central Park Loop on Sunday, April 19.

Runners will have the opportunity to select either a NYRR TCS New York City Marathon qualifier credit or complimentary entry into a future race. NYRR will contact runners to make their selection once the resumption of their race calendar is determined.

We are grateful for the passion and hard work you have dedicated to training for this beloved event, which is one of the largest women’s-only races in the country. We thank you for your understanding and we will be in touch with further details as well as future plans as we look ahead to next year.
