About the event

Join TeamMRF for the iconic TCS New York City Marathon set against the world famous Manhattan skyline.

You will be one of over 50,000 runners taking over the Big Apple for a surreal experience, whilst you run through the 5 diverse boroughs of New York. Starting in Staten Island, you will have over 2 million spectators cheering you on. The electric atmosphere will help to carry you over that all important finish link in central park, the heart of Manhattan.

Taking on this challenge is a bucket list experience and truly the challenge of a lifetime for any runner. Not only will you have the sense of achievement of completing a world famous marathon but you will know that you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer.

All of our runners can expect to receive:

  • Training and fundraising guide 
  • Personalised Meningitis Research Foundation running vest 
  • Award-winning fundraising support from Lauren, your dedicated charity contact
  • Regular updates throughout the year to keep you informed of everything you need to know
  • Access to our #TeamMRF New York Marathon team Facebook group so you can get to know and support your fellow runners, and celebrate each others training/fundraising achievements! 

The important bits:

  • The minimum fundraising target for this event is £2,400 (or €2800), which covers your entry to the marathon only 
  • ​You will need to complete the application form to be considered for a space, and we will aim to let you know as soon as possible whether or not you have been successful in securing a place in the event
  • If you are successful, to complete your registration you will be required to pay a $358 entry fee payable to New York City Marathon event organisers. You will also need to organise and pay for your own accommodation and travel to the event.

If you have your own space in the event, we would love to offer you the same support. Let us know by clicking the Sign Up button below so we can welcome you to the team with no fundraising target!

By becoming part of our team, you will be helping us to achieve our goal of defeating meningitis wherever it exists. Your contribution will enable us to fund vital research into the disease, provide life-saving awareness information, and support those who have lost a loved one or are coping with the after effects of this disease. 

PLEASE NOTE: Spaces for the 2020 New York Marathon are now full. However, you can click 'register your interest' below to be added to our waiting list, and we will be in touch as and when spaces in the event become available.
