NEW YORK MARATHON

NEW YORK, USA

NEW YORK MARATHON

HOW MANY CHARITIES ARE INVOLVED?


570 have guaranteed entries in the event and there are many more who have runners raising funds for them using their own entry. Most only have a handful of entries but some of the larger ones have well over 100.


WHY IS IT GOOD FOR FUNDRAISING?


Fundraising has a good profile on the site and there are many opportunities to have a presence on the course. The ballot ensures there is always high demand for the charity spots.


WHAT ABOUT AFTER THE RACE?


Most of the bigger charities will have post race functions where they take over sections of restaurants and cafes.


HOW MUCH IS RAISED?


$63 million was raised from the Marathon and the Half, which is held in March each year.



 



 

HOW TOUGH IS IT TO GET A CHARITY ENTRY?


Getting tougher. Runners have to raise $3000 but charities ask for more. They generally have significant demand for their entries and often have a wait list. Most will take the runner's credit card details and will use the card to make up about fundraising shortfall.
