Run the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon with Team Innocence Project

By Innocence Staff

Orland Boquete, right, with Jeff Deskovic, ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon in 2016.

On Sunday, March 17, 2019, the United Airlines NYC Half will take runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of NYC. Led by a talent-packed roster of American and international elites, runners will stop traffic in the Big Apple! Be a part of it and join Team Innocence Project. Run to raise awareness about wrongful convictions while fundraising to help free the innocent.

The race course will begin near Prospect Park in Brooklyn, before crossing the Manhattan Bridge, running through Times Square, and finishing in Central Park.

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 21st. 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.
