Take on the New York City Marathon

Is 2023 your year?

We’re offering a small set of keen runners to represent Kids Operating Room at the New York Marathon on Sunday 5 November. Likely to sell out beginning of May, we urge you to register your interest below and we’ll be in contact with how to officially join Team KidsOR. 

Imagine… You’re powering through 26.2 miles across New York’s five famous boroughs. Bubbling through these multi-cultural melting pots are crescendos of cheers from the thousands along the line. And in between breaths, you catch yourself smiling, because you're not only doing this for yourself - you're helping ensure children across the world have a better chance of receiving safe, and timely, surgery.

Arguably, the New York Marathon is a once in a lifetime opportunity – and we want to offer you the chance to realise that dream. With multiple packages on offer, covering accommodation, race entry and even flights, we'll ease the process so you can focus on training. At a glance, if you raise £1,000 for Kids Operating Room, we will contribute £500 towards your package - this is available up to the amount of a £2,000 rebate.
