Please join us for the continuation of our Boardroom Breakfast series on Thursday, October 4th featuring Michael Capiraso, President and CEO of New York Road Runners.

Mr. Capiraso will discuss his career, organization's mission and current initiatives, and his insight into civic engagement and leadership.

Michael Capiraso currently serves as the President and CEO of New York Road Runners (NYRR), where he continues to expand the organization's youth programming by aligning New York Road Runners with partners that help the organization drive innovation in the sport of running. Before he to became President and CEO of NYRR in 2015, he served as the organization's Executive Vice President in 2012 and the COO in 2010.  

Michael Capiraso is a champion of exceptional customer service and building a mission-driven brand, as evidenced by an increased focus on runner services and support, such as the rollout of an on-demand bib-assignment process for NYRR races and the relaunch of NYRR’s tiered membership program

Under his tenure, NYRR has also signed a multi-year agreement with New Balance, a well-established brand that shares NYRR’s commitment to emerging technology and giving back to the community. This shared mission has been brought to life at the NYRR RUNCENTER featuring the New Balance Run Hub—a hub for NYRR’s runner services as well as a unique run hub for New Balance. For each pair of shoes purchased, NYRR and New Balance donates a pair to a child in need in an effort to inspire and support the next generation of runners.

Michael Capiraso, a father of two, holds undergraduate and MBA degrees from Fairleigh Dickinson University and also studied film at New York University. Prior to NYRR, he accumulated 15 years of brand marketing, organizational strategy, and leadership experience at companies like National Football League, Major League Baseball, Cole Haan, and Calvin Klein. 

In November 2017, Capiraso, a self-described middle-of-the-pack runner, ran his 26th consecutive New York City Marathon, once again in support of NYRR Team for Kids. Over the past eight years, Capiraso has raised more than $80,000 for the charity.
