If you've applied to the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half, make sure you have a valid credit card as your default card in your My NYRR profile. 


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

Cancellation for Runners

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

Runners who have guaranteed entry to the 2017 race because they canceled in 2016 cannot cancel a second time and become eligible for guaranteed entry in 2018.

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 Withdrawn entrants will not receive guaranteed entry to the next year's TCS New York City Marathon or subsequent TCS New York City Marathons.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.
