INTRODUCTIONS (9:30 – 9:45AM)
I. FROM LOCAL BOROUGH RACE TO "FOMO" EVENT: A CASE STUDY OF THE NYRR BROOKLYN HALF (9:45-10:30AM)
In 2011, about 8,000 people ran the NYRR Brooklyn Half race. Registration was open for 3 ½ months. Only five years later in 2016, the race sold out in 52 minutes and became the largest half marathon in the U.S. with over 27,000 finishers. This year's race sold out in just 26 minutes. How did the Brooklyn Half go from local race to FOMO event? Nick Clark, Director of Business Development, Michael Cruz, Director of Brand Marketing & Communications, and Kyle McLaughlin, Director of Experiential, will share the story of how NYRR turned a simple race into a powerful asset through reimagining the race from start to finish, extending the event experience beyond the day of the race, and collaborating with our partners.
