Guaranteed Entry

As an official New York Road Runners charity partner, Alexandra’s Playground has a number of secured entries for the race. We allocate those spots to team members who do not get entry via the NYRR lottery and who commit to fundraising a minimum of $2000. That fundraising commitment must be met by March 15, 2016.

We ask that all team members first try to secure a spot in the race via the NYRR lottery system. Click here to sign up with NYRR. Please note the lottery closes on December 3rd and the drawing will take place on December 10th.
