Free to Run is excited to announce that once again, we are an official charity partner for the TCS New York City Marathon!
Through our partnership, we have guaranteed paid entries for any runner who wants to run the marathon and fundraise for Free to Run. So why not join us and run in one of the greatest marathons in the world while helping one your favourite charities!
