Worldwide Event:

With Covid-19 spreading at a record pace throughout New York and many parts of the United States, we are already seeing many 2021 races cancelled or postponed. This is a continued opportunity to stay fit and log some much needed miles. As a group, we plan to encourage you and hold you accountable!  21,997 participants took part in our 2020 One NY-affiliated virtual events, so you don't want to miss One NY Safe.

We will continue to support New York State Charities, which saw over $200,000 donated in 2020 with our challenges. 


One NY Safe has partnered with several of New York State's non-profits (501C-3) to help raise awareness and funds during this industry crippling pandemic. We ask you to look into each group and chose to represent the one that you're most passionate about.
