NOTE: Our guaranteed entries for the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon are currently filled. However, you can still join the Miles For Paws team to be put on the wait list for the 2017 Marathon, and to be the first to hear about available entries in other upcoming races, including the 2018 Marathon!

How Do I Qualify for Entry?

Whether you're a seasoned marathoner or a beginner looking to train for one, you can have guaranteed entry into the TCS New York City Marathon through Miles For Paws.

All Miles For Paws NYC Marathon participants are required to fundraise a minimum of $2,600, plus the TCS NYC Marathon registration fee. We make this easy by providing you with a personalized fundraising webpage. Please note, this minimum is set by NYRR and it is the same for all TCS NYC Marathon Charity Partners.

Due to the limited spots available and high demand for participation, please follow the following steps to apply to represent Miles For Paws in this year's TCS NYC Marathon:

If you have not already done so, please submit a Miles For Paws Application and pay your one-time team membership fee.

After you complete and submit the application and pay your membership fee, please e-mail to request a slot in the TCS NYC Marathon. You will be required to agree to the following:

I agree that, if selected, I will raise a minimum of $2,600 for the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals in exchange for guaranteed entry into the 20__ TCS NYC Marathon. I understand that there is no option to withdraw once registered. I understand that I am responsible for raising the $2,600 minimum by October __, 20__, even if for any reason I am unable to participate in or complete the TCS NYC Marathon on November __, 20__. If I have not reached the minimum requirement by that date, I will be responsible for the balance owed. All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
