There are only a few ways to get into this exclusive event:
- Elite runners qualify based on running time.
- Lucky ones – about 6% – get selected by lottery.
- New York Road Runners qualify by running 9 races and volunteering for one.
And remarkable people qualify by running for charity.
During the next five months, twelve Team Catholic Charities New York runners will dedicate themselves to two challenges: training to run 26.2 miles through every borough of New York City, and fundraising for The St. Nicholas Project, an initiative that helps New York families in need.
Response to the opportunity to run with Team Catholic Charities New York was great. We are now honored to announce our running team for the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon. Starting this month, we will be announcing one runner every week who has been accepted to run the Marathon with Team Catholic Charities NY.
