TCS New York City Marathon Official Charity Partner Program

New York Road Runners offers blocks of guaranteed, non-complimentary entries to selected nonprofits through the Official Charity Partner Program of the TCS New York City Marathon. The application to become an Official Charity Partner of the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon is closed. To be added to a notification list for the application for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon, email


The application for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon Official Charity Partner Program will open in the summer of 2016. Please check this webpage for updates.


Official Charity Partners pay a charity fee for each guaranteed entry they are allotted. That 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 race registration fees for their runners.


Selected charities will offer guaranteed entry to runners who agree to raise a specified minimum for the charity. Each charity can set its own fundraising requirement as long as it is higher than the program minimum. It is the Official Charity Partner's responsibility to hold its runners to the required minimum and ensure that each runner meets his or her own individual fundraising pledge. Official Charity Partners will be required to use CrowdRise for all fundraising related to the TCS New York City Marathon. 


Accepted charities will be allocated a minimum of 5 entries based on partnership history and the data collected in the application. No charity will be allocated more entries than requested on the application. The charity's allocation is determined at NYRR's discretion.
