2018 United Airlines NYC Half

Immigrant Justice Corps Named Official Charity Partner for 2018 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon 

For the first time ever, Immigrant Justice Corps is fielding a team of runners to raise funds to support the work of Immigrant Justice Corps’ Justice & Community Fellows.


About the Race


The United Airlines NYC Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, March 18, 2018.  Runners will complete a 13.1 mile run by iconic New York City landmarks beginning in Brooklyn and crossing the finish line in Manhattan at Central Park.  This year will feature a completely redesigned course with an expanded field including an expected 22,500 runners.
At the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half, approximately 2,700 runners raised $5M for charity.  That number includes a mix of runners who gained entry through one of more than 130 Official Charity Partners, and runners who used their own entry and raised funds for either an Official Charity Partner or another charity of their choice.
