Calling StartNew is functionally equivalent to creating a Task<TResult> using one of its constructors and then calling Start to schedule it for execution.

Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, you can use the Run method with an Action object as a quick way to call StartNew with default parameters. For more information and code examples, see the entry Task.Run vs. Task.Factory.StartNew in the Parallel Programming with .NET blog.
