Join the Challenged Athletes Foundation for a coveted guaranteed entry to the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. Registration is open!

Everyone deserves to feel the power of crossing a finish line. By participating in a CAF charity slot, you help fund the adaptive equipment, training and mentoring needed to get challenged athletes in the game - and to the finish line. Money raised will help the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) provide individuals with physical challenges with the tools necessary to find success in sports — and in life.

Join challenged athletes, able-bodied athletes, celebrities and pros as they complete the 26.2 mile run through the five boroughs of New York City. The TCS New York City Marathon is a marathon unlike any other!

Important Fundraising Information:
 

Registrants agree to raise or contribute a total of $3,500 by September 1, 2016 to participate as a charity runner with Team CAF at the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon. In order to retain the entry, the athlete must raise or contribute at least $2,000 toward the total amount ($3,500) by July 1, 2016.

If the athlete is not able to compete, withdrawal requests must be received in writing via e-mail to jennifer@challengedathletes.org. Without exception, all requests must be received on or before July 1, 2016 to be released out of $3,500 fundraising commitment. All money raised up to that point is non-refundable. Transfers or deferments of entry are NOT permitted.

If an athlete is injured during training after July 1, 2016, he or she is still responsible for raising or providing the $3,500 minimum, regardless if able to compete. Additionally, if any portion of race and/or the entire event is canceled for any reason beyond the control of the Challenged Athletes Foundation, the athlete is still required to raise $3,500 by September 1, 2016.
