Join Team Innocence Project for the 2023 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon

By Innocence Staff

On Sunday, March 19, 2023, the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon will take runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of New York City. Runners will begin their journey in Prospect Park before taking the race onto Brooklyn’s streets. The course will take runners over the Manhattan Bridge and up the FDR Drive before a crosstown dash on 42nd Street and a turn north on 7th Avenue, through Times Square, and into Central Park.

Be a part of this special event: Join Team Innocence Project, and run to raise awareness about wrongful convictions while fundraising to help free the innocent. 

Each member of the team commits to raising a required minimum of $1,500 by race day and receives:

  • Guaranteed entry into the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon
  • An Innocence Project jersey
  • A personal fundraising page on Haku
  • Fundraising tips and support from Innocence Project staff
  • Opportunities to run and train with fellow team members

To apply to join our charity team, please complete this form before Jan. 10. Team members will be notified of acceptance by Jan. 17. Please note that runners are responsible for their own registration fees: $130 for NYRR members and $145 for non-members. 

If you already have an entry but would like to support the Innocence Project by fundraising, please contact Crystal Ortiz at [email protected] or 646-842-1647.
