Run the NYC Marathon to Benefit Billion Oyster Project!

February 8, 2019

Billion Oyster Project is proud to be among the NYRR’s official Charity Partners for the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon.

We are currently full for the 2019 New York City Maraton. Please check back next year! 

Join the Billion Oyster Project Team
We’re looking for dedicated runners to join our Charity Partners team!

Running for the Billion Oyster Project team not only provides you with guaranteed entry into the race, it also gives you the opportunity to give back to New York Harbor, ensuring that our local waterway and the communities that surround it remain healthy and vibrant.

In exchange for raising $2,500 for Billion Oyster Project, we provide guaranteed race entry, Billion Oyster Project and Harbor School branded race gear, fundraising support, an invitation to exclusive race events and more!

For more information, contact Montana Jernigan at

When is the marathon?
The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon will take place on Sunday, November 3, 2019.

What are the fundraising expectations?
Each runner must raise a minimum of $2,500 by October 31, 2019.

Will Billion Oyster Project help me fundraise?
We will provide each runner with a dedicated online fundraising page through Crowdrise, a social media kit, and a fundraising email template. Throughout the year, we will send check-in emails to help runners stay on track with their goals. We will also feature the runners on our Billion Oyster Project social media channels and email newsletters.

I already have guaranteed entry into the marathon, can I still fundraise for Billion Oyster Project?
Yes, we invite runners who already have a guaranteed spot in the 2019 TCS NYC Marathon to join the team by joining our Crowdrise page.

How do I apply?
To apply, reach out to Montana Jernigan at Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
