Secure Your Spot

NYRR offers several ways to earn guaranteed entry into some of our biggest races. The 9+1 program, the 4 Out of 6 program, and the NYRR Virtual 6 program are each designed to enable runners to earn their spots the following year in the TCS New York City Marathon, the United Airlines NYC Half, and the Popular® Brooklyn Half.

United Airlines NYC Half

The 4 Out of 6 program allows NYRR members who meet the eligibility requirements to gain guaranteed entry to the United Airlines NYC Half. You can also earn entry through methods like meeting qualifying-time standards.

Eligibility for entry to the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half will be guaranteed for NYRR members who have an active membership by the last qualifying event of the 2019 4 Out of 6 program (NYRR Staten Island Half in October), and who run four of the following six events in 2019:

  • United Airlines NYC Half
  • Popular® Brooklyn Half
  • NYRR Queens 10K
  • NYRR Manhattan 7 Mile (Replacing NYRR Fred Lebow Half-Marathon in 2019)
  • New Balance Bronx 10 Mile
  • NYRR Staten Island Half
