Take on the Big Apple to create a world free from hunger
The TCS New York Marathon is renowned as the biggest and best supported marathon in the world, with over 2 million spectators lining the streets each year to cheer on 40,000 runners. The race takes runners through each of New York's five diverse boroughs; Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx, before finishing in the spectacular Central Park.
Runners from outside the USA have to secure their place in the race through either the ballot in February each year or through an International Travel Partner as part of a package. These packages work like many holiday packages, for example. Place + Flight or Place + Hotel or Place + Hotel + Flight.
In the UK we work with Sports Tour International, they offer a wide-range of packages that vary according to how long you want to stay in New York, the star rating and location of your hotel, as well as the airport you depart from and the airline too.
This is your challenge, and so you can choose which package works for you.
If you are lucky enough to secure a place through the ballot in February 2018 or purchase a package through one of our partners, you can select your own fundraising target and raise as much as you can. We will support you every step of the way, from signing up, to the finish line and beyond.
Just some of the support you'll recieve:
- A bespoke Action Against Hunger running vest
- Advice from the experienced runners in the Community fundraising team who have taken part in marathons themselves.
- Welcome Pack including a fundraising handbook and training plans.
- Materials you'll need to reach your fundraising target.
Join the team to help us create a world free from hunger.
