Join Team Alex – 2024 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon

JOIN OUR TEAM ALEX RUNNERS – Have Fun, Get in Shape and Give the Gift of Play!

Yes, we are doing it again! Team Alex is gearing up to run the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half on Sunday, March 17, 2024, on a 13.1 mile tour of New York City.

Get in shape while making a difference. Alexandra’s Playground is committed to bringing more children the opportunity for safe, active play. Children who regularly engage in active play grow up more physically, emotionally and cognitively healthy. We build playgrounds for deserving communities in the tri-state NY/NJ/CT area and beyond. We also support swimming instruction and play centered programming for children growing up in low-income households.

As an official New York Road Runners charity partner, Alexandra’s Playground has a limited 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 10, 2024.

We also welcome runners who already have their guaranteed entry and commit to a fundraising minimum of $1000.

All runners are responsible for their own entry fee into the 2024 United Airlines New York City Half Marathon.


Team Alex has been running the NYC Half Marathon since 2009. The funds raised go towards giving The Gift of Play by building playgrounds and supporting play centered programs in underserved communities. To date, with a focus on the NY/NJ/CT tri-state area, we have built 37 playgrounds across the US and abroad.
