We are proud to announce that the New York City's YMCA is an official charity partner of the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon.

Members and friends of the YMCA are encouraged to apply for a place on Team YMCA and by supporting New York City’s children and families. This year’s course takes runners on a 26.2 mile tour of iconic city landmarks beginning in Staten Island and finishing in Central Park. 

As a member of Team YMCA, you will receive guaranteed entry into the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon.

The money you raise—a minimum of $3,000 is required—in exchange for a spot in this iconic event will support the Y’s programs, which help close the academic opportunity gap, improve family health, create employment opportunities for teens, send students to college, and so much more. The Y is a catalyst for positive change and social good—and so are Team YMCA runners!

Bibs will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and Team YMCA runners will enjoy an assortment of perks that will support you as you train, fundraise and cross the starting line.



  • A customizable Classy fundraising page
  • A fundraising tool kit to help you manage your campaign
  • Regular emails from the Y offering creative fundraising tips and incentive
