New York Road Runners is pleased to offer blocks of guaranteed entries to qualified nonprofits through the 2015 NYC Half Official Charity Partner Program. Please see below for details, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The 2015 NYC Half is scheduled for Sunday, March 15, 2015. *Date is subject to change.
This application will be open from Friday, August 1, 2014, through Friday, August 29, 2014. All charities will be informed of their acceptance status by September 15, 2014. After that, accepted charities will be required to sign a contract and pay for their entries before they may start to recruit runners. Each selected charity will be expected to pay its invoice and submit a signed contract no later than December 1, 2014.
Each guaranteed entry for the 2015 NYC Half will cost $250, to be paid up-front by the charity. Please note that this fee does not cover the runner's race registration fee, which will be due when the runner registers for the race. Charities may choose to pay the registration fees for their runners; if they do, they must designate that choice on the contract.
Each new charity selected for the program will be allotted five entries. Returning charities will be given entries based on partnership history. We encourage you to be conservative in the number of entries you request, as there will be no refunds for entries that you do not use.
The application for the Official Charity Partner Program for the 2015 NYC Half is closed. All interested organizations who applied will be notified by September 15, 2014. Applications for the 2016 race will be open in summer 2015.
