NYC Marathon 2019 timeline
ATHLETES WITH DISABILITIES
You must be in the Achilles International database by February 1, 2019.
You must register yourself online for the TCS New York City Marathon at www.nyrr.org by February 14, 2019.
Achilles staff members compare the list of registrants with the database and if you were not selected in the drawing, we ask NYRR accept your registration. When they do, your credit card will be charged and you should receive an email confirmation.
New process is in place this year. The NYRR would like the athlete or the person who holds power of attorney for the athlete to specify their guide / support runner and ask for what they need.
