The TCS NYC Marathon

For the fifth year, City Harvest has been selected to be a Charity Partner for the TCS New York City Marathon held on Sunday, November 5, 2017 this year, and we invite you to join our team!

We are calling on runners of all levels to join us in raising over $100,000 to help feed hungry New Yorkers.

Each runner will be required to raise at least $3,000 – enough to rescue and deliver 12,000 pounds of food that would otherwise go to waste! As a member of the City Harvest Marathon team, you will receive:

• Guaranteed race entry
• Full coverage of the registration fee
• A personalized fundraising web page
• Training and nutrition resources
• Invitation to the team’s pre-race Pasta Party
• Tickets to a race-day Viewing Party along the Marathon route
• Signature City Harvest running shirt
• And much more!

Meet the Coach

Kara is a Barry’s Bootcamp trainer, personal trainer, boxing instructor, and avid runner. She’s run the Nashville Rock’n’Roll marathon series, as well as the TCS New York City Marathon, and many half-marathons across the country. She’s currently trying to check one off in every state!

She believes in guilty pleasures, in moderation, and working hard because you love your body, not because you don’t like it. She loves reading, running, and red wine! She’s full of tough love and takes zero excuses.

She’s from Huntsville, Alabama, but has been living in Astoria, New York for five years. Here to help you with any training or recovery needs throughout training, and wants you to remember that the recovery days are even more important than the training ones!

We hope that you’ll join us to help out run hunger in our city.
