For one month only, runners will have the opportunity to enter their application for the 2017 New York City Marathon. Both guaranteed and non-guaranteed entries will remain open through Feb. 17 for the 47th running of the race on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.
“Today, the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon application officially opens. We’re thrilled to welcome runners from around the world to apply to take part in this transformative experience through New York City’s five boroughs,” said Ronnie Tucker, vice president, marketing and digital of New York Road Runners. “Whether you apply to run through this year’s free drawing, receive guaranteed entry through NYRR’s popular 9+1 program, or take part on behalf of a charity such as NYRR’s Team for Kids or one of our many official charity partners, we look forward to seeing you cross the finish line this November.”
Runners guaranteed an entry in the 2017 race must still claim their spot during the month-long application window. However, a drawing on March 2 will take place for non-guaranteed applicants.
Another way runners can receive a guaranteed spot in the race is by registering to run for NYRR’s Team for Kids, the New York City Marathon’s largest charity which raises funds for NYRR’s free youth running programs for kids who would otherwise have little or no access to regular physical activity.
