Apply to run the marathon with us and fundraise to support MFOL!

Born out of a tragic school shooting, March For Our Lives (MFOL) is a courageous youth-led movement dedicated to promoting civic engagement, education, and direct action by youth to eliminate the epidemic of gun violence.

March For Our Lives is proud to be an official New York Road Runners (NYRR) charity partner for the 2024 TCS New York City Marathon! As the largest marathon in the world, some 50,000+ runners will embark on a journey to run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of NYC: Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan, crossing the finish line in the iconic Central Park. There will be countless spectators cheering runners on along the course and from across the globe.

Through the NYRR x MFOL partnership, runners can make their race even more meaningful by joining Team March For Our Lives and fundraising to support our vision of a world free of gun violence.
