Spots are limited, so selection criteria includes commitment to our cause and pledging to raise the most money for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation. The minimum fundraising commitment required by the New York Road Runners to join Team SHP is $3,000.

With every mile you run, you’re helping to create a culture engaged in preventing shootings, violence, and other harmful acts in schools. Children are safer today thanks to the commitment of runners like you. Our runners have our deepest gratitude!

As you may know, this the 50th Anniversary of the New York City Marathon and we are anticipating an increase in applicants. We’re cautiously optimistic about this year’s event. Our marathon advisory group has shared that runners are eager to hit the pavement despite the current COVID-19 crisis.
