In exchange for a $30 registration fee, you’ll receive an official charity slot in the TCS New York City Marathon on November 4, 2018 (with all entry fees paid), a Team Spina Bifida racing shirt, your own personal webpage, a fundraising toolkit, and ongoing staff support.
Unlike many other marathon programs, Team Spina Bifida doesn't mandate a formal training program. We allow you to train at your own pace and on your own time. Of course, we’ll motivate you along the way!
In exchange for the benefits above, you agree to raise a minimum of $3,000 for SBA. One month before the race, if you have not yet met your minimum, you will be asked to sign a Commitment Form, providing us with your credit card information. Thirty days after the race, on December 4th, we will charge your card for any remaining balance. If you cannot pay the sum in full, we will be happy to set up a payment plan for you utilizing that credit card on file. We're also happy to work with you on setting a higher fundraising minimum, which will qualify you for hotel reimbursement.
Register beginning on March 1, 2018 to secure one of our 5 available charity slots. Please note (updated 6/13/18): If you are a wheelchair participant and would like to occupy a charity slot you must submit an application directly to New York Road Runners per their policy. It involves answering a series of questions about your past marathon participation and equipment. Please contact Elizabeth Merck directly for more information if you are a prospective wheelchair participant.
