2024 NYC Half Marathon SoleMates Details

SoleMates train for the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on March 17, 2024, while raising funds for girls in New York City. As a SoleMate charity athlete, you will receive the support of our SoleMates Committee, staff, and community partners! 

Currently, more than 80% of the girls in our program receive financial assistance to participate — and as a SoleMate, you make this possible. Funds raised by SoleMates allow girls the opportunity to participate in our life-changing program, empowering them to be confident, healthy, and joyful. Your support will help us maintain our commitment to serve all girls, regardless of financial need.

To get guaranteed entry into the race, you commit to one of these options:

Fundraise $2,100
You give the Girls on the Run program season to six students; we’ll reimburse your race registration fee.
Fundraise $1,600
You allow for four students to participate in our middle school Heart & Sole program in an upcoming season.
Choose Your Own
Do you have your own entry for the New York City Half Marathon? You can join our 2024 NYC Half Marathon SoleMates team and fundraise for our program if you already have guaranteed entry into the race. When you register, select the “I already have my own entry into the NYC Half Marathon” option. We ask that you fundraise $750 for Girls on the Run NYC, and you can set your goal even higher! You are not held to a fundraising commitment if you have your own entry.

SoleMate Testimonies

Hear from our SoleMates!

"Being a SoleMate for the NYC Marathon was an amazing experience! From the beginning, Girls on the Run supported us and helped us in any way, and it made me excited to fundraise for such an amazing cause. Working towards something and training for the marathon gave me such a strong purpose over the past few months, and I loved the commitment of it. Running the marathon was an experience I'll never forget!"
"When I saw GOTR's mission, it just clicked and gave me the inner confidence that I could maybe run a marathon again…and if I can’t do it for myself, I felt I could power through with GOTR's mission in my heart…and so I did."
