Why did you increase entry fees for some races in 2017?

The costs of ensuring that NYRR can continue to produce the TCS New York City Marathon and the United Airlines NYC Half in a safe, first-class manner for runners of all ages and abilities while positively impacting communities around the five boroughs have risen substantially.  Due to these rising event expenses, and the inclusion of processing and administrative costs associated with the non-guaranteed entry drawing and the race registration process, we raised entry fees in 2017 for the first time in five years.
