New York, February 12, 2015-The application for entry to the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon will close on Sunday, February 15, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Those who wish to apply should visit the TCS New York City Marathon website, tcsnycmarathon.org. The race, which is the premier event of New York Road Runners and the largest marathon in the world, will take place on Sunday, November 1.
Runners who earned guaranteed entry can claim their spot during the month-long application window. Information regarding guaranteed entry is available online at tcsnycmarathon.org.
Non-guaranteed entry is gained through a drawing that brings together runners of all skill levels from around the world. The non-guaranteed applicant drawing will be held on March 3, 2015. The non-guaranteed entry process helps preserve the unparalleled diversity of the race and will include three simultaneous drawings covering “NYC-metro area” applicants (i.e., residents in and within 60 miles of New York City), “National” applicants (i.e., United States residents outside of the NYC-metro area) and “International” applicants (i.e., non-United States residents, including Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories).
Runners can also receive a guaranteed spot in the race by running for NYRR’s Team for Kids. Team for Kids is a committed group of adult runners from around the world who add meaning to their miles by raising funds for NYRR’s Youth and Community Services programs. More than 200,000 students are served locally and nationally through NYRR’s free youth running programs, events, and resources, including more than 120,000 in New York City’s five boroughs. During the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon, the Team for Kids charity was led by Team for Kids Ambassador and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, who, in her first-ever marathon, supported and raised funds for the charity running team. Information on guaranteed entry through NYRR’s Team for Kids is available online at runwithtfk.org.
The 2015 TCS New York City Marathon will feature the world’s top professional athletes and a vast range of competitive, recreational, and charity runners, as well as thousands of volunteers and more than one million neighbors and guests lining the streets of New York City’s five boroughs. The race will once again air live in New York on ABC7 and nationally on ESPN2.
