2019 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon Charity Entry Slots Available Now

Want to run in one of the most iconic Half Marathons in the world? The United Airlines NYC Half will take place on March 17, 2019. Are you registered for the drawing? 

If you miss the sign up or don’t get in through the drawing, we can help get you a bib. By fundraising for Achilles International, you’ll get a guaranteed entry into the race, a chance to strut your stuff through Times Square and show off the newest medal for your collection -- all while helping a great cause! The minimum fundraising is $1000, which may sound a bit daunting at first -- but once you share stories of our inspiring Athletes and their accomplishments you’ll be well on the way to your goal… And the finish line in Central Park!

Achilles’ mission is to empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics in order to promote personal achievement, enhance self esteem, and lower barriers to living a fulfilling life.  In fact, we will have over 50 athletes with disabilities participating alongside you at the NYC Half.

The fundraising:  We support you with access to an easy-to-build online fundraising page that you can use to track your progress. If you need help with text and photos, we will provide you with content.  Once in place, you send the fundraising page link to your email contacts and post it to your social media networks.

Your entry package includes:  The official Achilles International racing jersey, the opportunity to join us at our twice-weekly group workouts in Central Park with Achilles NYC and a chance to trek from Grand Army Plaza to Central Park for the experience of a lifetime!

Are you interested in professional coaching? For an additional donation of $500, we will provide a Road Runners Club of America Certified running coach who will conduct a phone consultation to learn about your current fitness level and race day goals and create a 12 week training program. Your coach will be available for weekly calls to check in on your progress and provide nutritional and weekly training tips. Your coach will be available for two in person training sessions per month during the 12 week program.


The NYC Half Marathon experience:  The 2019 United Airlines NYC Half will take runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of NYC. Led by a talent-packed roster of American and international elites, runners will stop traffic in the Big Apple this March! The United Airlines NYC Half is one of the NYRR Five-Borough Series: Run New York. Five Boroughs. One City.
