Run marathon with WITNESS

Run for Human Rights: Join Team WITNESS in the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon!

It feels like the dust has barely settled on last year’s marathon, when our amazing team of 5 runners raised over $16,000 in support of human rights worldwide. But runners everywhere are already looking ahead to Sunday, November 1, when the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon kicks off – and WITNESS is ready to help them all the way to the finish line.

For the fifth consecutive year, WITNESS is proud to be an official Charity Partner for the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon. We welcome runners of all levels and backgrounds, and from all over the world, to join us in our fight for human rights.

 How it works:

Runners must register with the team by August 30, 2015. Note that spots are limited and will go quickly – so the sooner you reach out, the better your chances!

Each runner commits to raising a minimum of $3,000 in support of WITNESS by November 30, 2015.

As a member of Team WITNESS, you will receive:

  • A guaranteed spot on the starting line;
  • A personalized WITNESS jersey;
  • A complimentary NYRR online training program;
  • Fundraising tips and strategies to help you meet your goal;
  • Invitations to special WITNESS events and team get-togethers.

Please contact for details on how to run for WITNESS.
