Congratulations to New York Road Runners Mighty Milers on running a collective five million miles so far in school year 2015-16!


This information will guide you through our cancellation policies and processes. 

Cancellation for Runners

All 2016 TCS New York City Marathon fees are non-refundable. If you cancel your entry, it cannot be reinstated for any reason for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. If you cancel this year (and did not cancel last year) and you want to guarantee your entry for 2017, you'll need to apply for the 2017 race during the application window and pay the processing and entry fees required.

Runners who have guaranteed entry to the 2016 race because they cancelled in 2015 cannot cancel a second time and become eligible for guaranteed entry in 2017.

Cancellation for Official Charity Partner Program Entrants

If you applied through an official charity or charity partner and wish to cancel, please contact your charity directly for cancellation requirements. Charity entrants may be eligible to receive guaranteed entry to the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon if they have met their 2016 fundraising requirements with the charity partner.

Cancellation for International Travel Partner Entrants

If you applied through an International Travel Partner and wish to withdraw, please contact your travel partner directly. Withdrawn entrants will not receive guaranteed entry to the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon or subsequent TCS New York City Marathons.

Cancellation for Athletes with Disabilities

Handcyclists and other AWDs entered in the 2016 race through Achilles International who cancel are not eligible for guaranteed entry to the 2017 race unless entered by Achilles International in that race.
