If one of your post-pandemic goals is to run in the NYC Marathon and support your favorite water-filtering floating swimming pool in the process, we’ve got you covered!
Friends of + POOL was named an Official Charity Partner for the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon, taking place on November 7, 2021. This year serves as the 50th celebratory running of the marathon. + POOL will be among the more than 400 official charity partners providing thousands of runners the opportunity to run in the world’s most popular marathon.
The 2021 TCS New York City Marathon will commemorate the race’s 50th running with runners from all over the world participating in-person and virtually. The marathon began in 1970 and has become one of the most anticipated annual mass sporting events in New York City. This year’s marathon will once again bring together people of all ages and abilities reflecting the resilience and strength of the running community.
New York Road Runners (NYRR), the official organizer of the marathon does this really cool thing where they offer charities guaranteed entries for individuals that commit to raising money in support of a charity partner. This is just one of the ways NYRR supports all the amazing work by all the amazing charities in New York.
The minimum fundraising commitment for + POOL runners is $3,000 to gain entry. All proceeds will support the next phase of + POOL’s development and the + POOL team will support your fundraising goals along the way.
If you’re interested in running the marathon in support of + POOL, please complete this form by July 1. We have a limited number of spaces available from NYRR and will only be able to accommodate those who commit to the fundraising goal and express interest on a first come, first serve, basis.
