Samaritans has a limited number of guaranteed entries as a charity partner with the New York Road Runners for the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon.

When you sign-up to run the TCS New York Marathon on Sunday, November 5, 2023 as a member of Samaritans “Be A Friend” Team, you are taking an important step to help people in crisis and help save lives.

To receive guaranteed entry to the TCS New York City Marathon as a member of  our “Be A Friend” team, runners must pledge to raise $3,000 for Samaritans. Funds raised help us meet the ever-increasing demand for our services.

If you already have guaranteed entry for the race or have been selected through the Entry Drawing, you can still join the Samaritans ‘Be A Friend” Running Team and run for Samaritans and suicide prevention!

All Samaritans “Be A Friend”  Running Team members will receive:

  • fully covered entry fee
  • team t-shirt
  • personalized fundraising website
  • fundraising tips and support to help you meet your goal
