About The Run Against Breast Cancer NEW YORK CITY

The Run Against Breast Cancer half marathon in New York City on December 2, 2023, is a meaningful race that allows participants to stand together against cancer. This incredible event offers not only a half marathon but also options to participate in a 5K or 10K run. By taking part, you contribute to a great cause, as a percentage of the run proceeds combined with 100% of the fundraising will be donated to the American Cancer Society, the oldest and largest cancer organization in the United States.

With a limited number of participants per wave, this race ensures an intimate and supportive atmosphere, accommodating all paces and ages (under 18 with a guardian) for both runners and walkers. What sets this race apart is the focus on the pure enjoyment of running, without the pressure of timing chips. However, if you choose, the coordinators will provide bib numbers for timing purposes.

As a participant, you will receive a premium running shirt and a finisher’s medal, both of which will be shipped to your address along with other swag. Additionally, you gain access to a virtual community of runners, creating lasting connections beyond the race day.

The organizers of the Run Against Breast Cancer have taken care of all the details to make your experience stress-free. Packet pickup is hassle-free, with swag shipped directly to your address. On race day, you will receive your race bib, and the coordinators will keep you updated with final details and course maps.

Imagine the excitement of running through the iconic streets of New York City in early December. The city will be adorned with holiday decorations, creating a magical atmosphere. While the weather can be chilly during this time of year, it will surely add a layer of invigorating freshness to your run.
