Just six months since Superstorm Sandy shut down the 2012 ING New York City Marathon and two months since the Boston Marathon bombing, runners are lacing their sneakers and preparing to take to the road.
Join us at Team Catholic Charities to run the 2013 ING New York City Marathon.
There are only a few ways to get into this exclusive event. These include elite runners who qualify based on running time. Lucky ones – just a few percent – get selected through a lottery. Not-so-lucky ones who qualified but couldn’t run in last year’s canceled race get another try. Members of New York Road Runners qualify by running nine races and volunteering for one.
And remarkable people qualify by running for charity.
And here’s the great news. Catholic Charities is an official charity partner.
You can become one of the remarkable people running by qualifying for one of Catholic Charities’ ten elite spots.
