Treadmill Challenge

Celebrating 20 Years of Youth Running 

     TFK Treadmill Challenge with the Izzo Brothers and Zwift at the TCS New York City Marathon Expo presented by New Balance

Join NYRR Team for Kids’ Treadmill Endurance Challenge featuring the Izzo brothers – Matt, Stephen, and Paul to raise funds to get more kids moving. This dynamic ultrarunning trio will run on treadmills throughout the three days of the expo, and then complete the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday. They are expected to each run 150 miles!

How you can join

Join in the celebration at the expo by donating $20 to run on the treadmills with the Izzo Brothers. You can find us at the end of the Name Wall. With your support, our goal is to raise $120,000 to help fuel the next 20 years.
