Learn about our NYC Marathon team.

Thank you for your interest in the 2024 NYC Marathon Team. We were given 30 spots this year.

Given that CaringKind has an extremely limited number of spots for the TCS NYC Marathon; we ask that prospective members submit a secure online application. If selected, participants commit to raising a minimum of $3,500 (if you need an entry from CaringKind) or $1,500 (if you already have an entry) by October 18, 2024 and agree to the fundraising deadline schedule listed below. To apply for the team, please complete and submit this online application. We will notify all applicants of their status as soon as possible.

In addition, each runner is responsible to pay New York Road Runners (organizer of the TCS NYC Marathon) the standard runner entry fee ($295) for the TCS New York City Marathon upon successful registration for the race in August.

If you are accepted on to the team, your credit card on file will be charged $50 to secure your spot. This amount will count towards your personal fundraising minimum. CaringKind will contact you when you apply in order to put your credit card number on file.

Fundraising Deadlines:

October 18, 2024 - Deadline to complete the minimum fundraising requirement.

CaringKind does not pay the runner’s registration fee to NYRR. Each runner is responsible for paying that fee directly to NYRR during that registration process. ($255 for NYRR members; $295 for non-members)

In an effort to generate awareness of your outstanding effort to support CaringKind and the services we provide for the community, we ask that you wear your branded gear, not only on Race Day, but as much as possible during the training season.

If you would like to contact us during the application process, please contact Samantha Vaccaro at 646-744-2979 or send an email to with your full name, date of application submission, if applicable, and any questions or comments you may have.
