How do I participate in the 9+1 program and how do I know if an event is +1 eligible?

  • NYRR's 9+1 program offers guaranteed, non-complimentary entry to the TCS New York City Marathon the year following the completion of the program.To be eligible for guaranteed entry, participants must complete nine NYRR marathon-qualifying races and volunteer at one event over the course of a calendar year.
  • All of NYRR's weekly races are +1 eligible with the exception of the TCS New York City Marathon.
  • You don’t need to sign up for the program. Once you participate in a race or complete a volunteer commitment, you will start to accumulate credits toward guaranteed entry. The status bar on your My NYRR dashboard will display your progress.
