NYRR Race Free

NYRR Race Free

NYRR’s Race Free initiative is a need-based fee-assistance program for adults, funding the participation of more than 1,000 individuals annually in weekly and Five-Borough Series races, as well as the TCS New York City Marathon. Eligibility is assessed based on a runner’s need for assistance to pay NYRR race registration fees. Your donation will help members of the running community participate in NYRR races - including the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon - who for personal and financial reasons would otherwise be unable to do so.
