Application and Registration Guidelines

  • Once you have applied to join Champions for CHAM, your application will be reviewed (application review begins on March 2, 2017) and you will receive an email notification regarding the status. Completing the application does NOT assure you of entry to the marathon, as we have a limited number of entries from New York Road Runners.
  • If invited to join, you will be required to complete a pledge agreement and set up a Crowdrise page. Issuance of your invitation to register for the TCS New York City Marathon will be contingent upon receipt of the pledge agreement.
