Another Opportunity to support the
Greenbelt Conservancy while you run

Can I still run with Team Greenbelt even if I have already obtained guaranteed entry into the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon?

YES! If you are able to obtain entry to the event via the drawing, or as a qualifier, you are still welcome to join Team Greenbelt. Runners who have already obtained guaranteed entry will be asked to raise a minimum of $500 and will obtain all Team Greenbelt perks. Please email to learn more.
