2020 TCS New York City Marathon Cancellation: Team for Kids Runner Resolution Options

The 2020 TCS New York City Marathon, set to take place on November 1, has been canceled. New York Road Runners (NYRR), the event organizer, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of the City of New York, have made the decision to cancel the world’s largest marathon due to coronavirus-related health and safety concerns for runners, spectators, volunteers, staff, and the many partners and communities that support the event. Please review your resolution options and follow the guide below to make your resolution selection.


YOUR RESOLUTION OPTIONS

If you registered for the race using a Team for Kids invitation code, your resolution options are as follows:

  • Refund* of your race entry fee
  • Complimentary entry for a future marathon**
  • Donate* the value of your entry fee to support NYRR’s free youth and community programs.

* If you select Refund, Donate, or Close my 2020 Team for Kids Individual Member Agreement, you will forfeit your race entry. Your 2020 Team for Kids Individual Member Agreement will be closed and you will have no further fundraising commitment. Please note that the Team for Kids sign-up fee and any donations collected to date are non-refundable.
** If you select entry for a future marathon:

  • Funds raised in your 2020 campaign will be credited toward fulfilling your minimum fundraising commitment in the year selected. Additionally, your fundraising deadline will be extended to 31 days before the date of the marathon you select.
  • You will participate in a future marathon selection process in 2021 to choose the year for your entry (either 2021, 2022, or 2023). You may not be guaranteed your preferred year due to potential limitations to future field sizes. As we work through the planning process with government officials, we will make it a priority to share information as it is determined.
