Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have guaranteed entry once I register online?

In order to guarantee your spot, a recommitment form is needed on file. If the recommitment form is not received by the deadline given to you, you will not have a confirmed spot in the TCS New York City Marathon.

If I am not fully vaccinated, can I run in the NYC Marathon if I show proof of a negative COVID-19 test? NEW!

As per NYRR’s new policy, proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted in place of proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Only proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will enable a runner to participate in an NYRR race.

What if the 2022 NYC Marathon gets cancelled?

If future New York City Marathons are canceled for any reason, NYRR will announce resolution options and process. You will still be held to your commitment to run and fundraise for the ASPCA, however, your fundraising minimum deadline will correlate with the year you participate. For example, if you wind up running in the 2023 NYC Marathon, your fundraising deadline will be in October 2023.

What if I don’t reach my fundraising minimum?

If you do not reach your fundraising minimum by the deadline, we will charge the balance as a donation to the credit card indicated on your recommitment form.

What if I cannot participate after I register and submit my recommitment form?

Every team member who registers and completes the recommitment form is committed to reaching their fundraising minimum by the deadline regardless of situations that may arise. These entries are crucial fundraising opportunities for the ASPCA which is why we must ask everyone to commit to their fundraising goal when we assign the race entry to their name.

When is the deadline to reach my fundraising minimum?

You must reach 50% of your fundraising minimum by September 11, 2022 and 100% of your fundraising minimum by October 16, 2022.
