This week at Peloton is brought to you by the word Partnership!
Peloton has announced a multi-year partnership with the New York Road Runners (NYRR), New York’s premier road race organizer. Through this collaboration, Peloton Scenic and Outdoor content will bring the excitement of NYRR races to runners worldwide, with audio classes releasing in late 2023 and Scenic content launching in the spring of 2024 on the Peloton Tread/Tread+. Peloton Instructors Rad Lopez and Mariana Fernandez helped usher in this announcement via a Reel on Peloton’s Instagram channel.

Becoming a Strategic Partner of NYRR through 2025 in the Digital Fitness category, Peloton aims to create motivational fitness content accessible to runners of all abilities. As a new Strategic Partner, Peloton will also activate around the United Airlines NYC Half and the RBC Brooklyn Half.
Creating Content for the Running Community
Christine Burke, SVP Strategic Partnerships and Runner Products, commented on the partnership, stating, “Connecting the world to New York’s streets through Peloton’s technology will help grow the running community and extend NYRR’s reach.” This innovative collaboration aims to bring the iconic race-course experience of NYRR races to runners everywhere.
With NYRR races consistently selling out at unprecedented rates and the TCS New York City Marathon being the hottest ticket in town, Peloton and NYRR aim to provide scenic running content featuring Peloton instructors. More than 50,000 runners will participate in the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon on November 5, and Peloton will create scenic running content incorporating actual course footage, a first for Peloton.
Unique features such as auto-incline will further enhance the experience, mimicking the feeling of bridges, for a truly immersive experience. Equally notable, Peloton’s scenic content captured at this year’s marathon will be available on the Peloton Tread and Tread+ in the spring of 2024.
