Memorial Sloan Kettering's Fred's Team Presents Grete's Great Gallop (13.1M)

 

Please note that this race is a half-marathon.

Join Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Fred’s Team for Grete’s Great Gallop (named for legendary marathoner Grete Waitz, a close friend of New York City Marathon co-founder Fred Lebow) on October 5 in Central Park! Grete and Fred ran the 1992 New York City Marathon while he was fighting brain cancer. Today, Fred’s Team (named after Lebow) has raised more than $54 million to bring us all one step closer to a world without cancer. The event includes a half-marathon and a 1.7-mile run, as well as kids' races.

Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Fred’s Team Presents Grete's Great Gallop 1.7M (8:15 a.m. on the same day) is also open for registration; the 1.7-mile event is NOT a marathon qualifier. Please register for one event only.

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!

Use MTA Trip Planner to plan your trip.
