New York Road Runners offers blocks of non-complimentary, guaranteed entries to qualified and selected nonprofits through the Official Charity Partner Program of the United Airlines NYC Half. Details about the Official Charity Partner Program will be added to this page as they are confirmed. Please see below and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Official Charity Partners pay a charity fee for each guaranteed entry that they are allotted. 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 race registration fees for their runners.
Selected charities will offer guaranteed entry to runners who agree to raise a minimum amount set by NYRR. 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.
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. We recommend that charities be conservative in the number of entries requested as there will be no refunds for entries not filled. New charities will only be offered 5 entries.
The online application for the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half Official Charity Partner Program will be available on this page from Monday, August 1, 2016 through August 31, 2016. Only completed applications will be considered.
