2021 TCS New York City Marathon

The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) assembled a team to run the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon, set to take place on Sunday, November 7, 2021. 

Support Team CRI at the Marathon


Your support will help raise critical funds for highly promising cancer immunotherapy research all around the world.

The CRI 2021 TCS New York City Marathon team is FULL!

If you have secured an official entry on your own directly through New York Road Runners, the race organizers, and DO NOT require a charity entry from Team CRI, you may join our team as a fundraiser. (Fundraising for Team CRI does NOT guarantee entry into the race.) If you are interested in fundraising for our team, please email Cierra Howard at [email protected].


The Cancer Research Institute is the world's leading nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancer.  Because of the pioneering research we have funded for over 65 years, cancer immunotherapy today is no longer a dream held by a determined few. New treatments based on decades of discovery are extending and saving the lives of some patients with some types of cancer. Join our team and help us make this a reality for all patients, with all types of cancer, sooner.

Benefits of becoming a registered Team CRI runner include:

  • Access to personalized Team CRI fundraising page
  • Fundraising tips and support pre- and post-race
  • Branded team gear


Official Team CRI runners commit to fundraising a minimum of $2,500 due in full before November 7, 2021. In addition to the fundraising pledge, Team CRI runners are responsible for paying an entry fee directly to the marathon organizer, New York Road Runners, in order to secure a slot in the race. Entry fees vary based on NYRR membership status ($255 member and $295 non-member).

If runners do not reach their fundraising minimum by the deadline, CRI will charge the balance as a donation to the credit card provided on their registration form.

Every team member who officially registers and obtains an entry through Team CRI is committed to reaching their fundraising minimum by the deadline regardless of any situations that may arise. Monies fundraised will not be refunded and entries cannot be transferred by runners following the deadline(s).

These entries are vital fundraising opportunities for the Cancer Research Institute, which is why we ask everyone to commit to their fundraising goal when we assign the race entry to their name.
