On  Sunday, March 15, 2020, the United Airlines NYC Half will take runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of NYC. Runners will begin their journey in Prospect Park before taking the race onto Brooklyn’s streets. For the third year in a row, 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 it and join Team Innocence Project. 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 Crowdrise
  • 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 February 20. 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 Indrani Nicodemus at [email protected] or 212-450-6024.
