Team Hope Endures: Run for Hope Network in the New York City Marathon


Run for Hope Network with Team Hope Endures

TCS New York City Marathon
Sunday, November 6, 2022
New York City, New York


Our Cause

Running a marathon is big. It’s a tremendous undertaking requiring an incredible amount of endurance and motivation. It’s the kind of thing that turns heads – and because of that, it’s the perfect opportunity to spotlight a cause that makes a difference.

At Hope Network, we help people overcome. From addiction and mental illness to gaps in affordable housing and education – we exist to help those facing physical, social, mental barriers live their fullest life possible. It’s all about making the seemingly impossible possible. Right now, you can be part of this life-changing work. Go the extra mile by running in support of the Hope Network Foundation.

When you sign up to run with our marathon team on behalf of the Hope Network Foundation, we will be with you every step of the way. You will have access to fitness training, an amazing team of supporters…and the best part? Your fundraising efforts will support vital mental health, life and wellness services across the state of Michigan.

Your Commitment

The TCS New York City Marathon provides the Hope Network Foundation with a very limited number of entries for the race. Because of this limited quantity, we invite you to join our team waitlist so that you can be one of the first to know when our team application window opens. Spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis until our team is sold out.


If you apply to run with our marathon team to obtain a free guaranteed charity entry, your fundraising minimum will be $2,500. Additionally, runners with a guaranteed entry secured on their own may join our team at any time for a $500 fundraising minimum commitment.

There are several different ways to register with our marathon team. Please read the registration information below for more details.

Marathon Team Registration Process

To join our marathon team and guarantee your entry into the TCS New York City Marathon, just follow these quick and easy steps:

  1. Join our marathon team waitlist through our link here.
  2. You will next receive an email from the Hope Network Foundation requesting that you complete a team waiver.
  3. Once you do this, you will receive email notification from the Hope Network Foundation with a unique URL to register for the NYC Marathon.
  4. After you register on the NYC Marathon site, the Hope Network Foundation will confirm your application.
  5. Start training and raising funds to help people overcome with Hope Network!

If you secured your own entry through the drawing period and would like to join our marathon team, you can do so by completing the same steps above and selecting the $500 fundraising commitment level.

NOTE: Hope Network can lobby for more guaranteed entries. If you are not selected for the first round of entries we have available, we will be lobbying for additional spots through the marathon staff and through other charity partners that wish to sell their extra entries. We will work through a wait list process for those interested in one of these additional spots on the team if they become available.

NOTE: You must provide credit card information on the NYC Marathon site. You WILL be charged for your entry up front, however Hope Network will reimburse you for the cost of your NYC Marathon entry ($295 savings)!

The race registration fees for the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon are:

  • $255 for NYRR members
  • $295 for nonmembers
  • $358 for non-U.S. residents

TCS New York City Marathon Registration Process

Guaranteed charity entry for the TCS New York City Marathon (available now through September 15, 2022):

Athletes who wish to bypass the TCS New York City Marathon registration process and secure a guaranteed entry may join our marathon team. All participating runners will need to be invited and register for the TCS New York City Marathon through My NYRR by September 15, 2022.

If you choose to guarantee your entry into the race by joining our marathon team, you are committing to a required and enforced fundraising minimum of $2,500 for Hope Network by the deadline of October 31, 2022. If this minimum is not met, you will be charged the full amount or balance due to the credit card you provided, and/or not permitted to participate in the TCS New York City Marathon at Hope Network’s discretion.

Please note that this type of guaranteed entry is available on a first come, first serve basis. Hope Network marathon team members still need to complete their registration with the TCS New York City Marathon after they register with Hope Network.

A link to officially register for the marathon will be sent to you shortly after you join our marathon team. The marathon registration (reimbursed by Hope Network) will be charged to your credit card at the standard $255 (U.S. Residents; NYRR Members) / $295 (U.S. Residents; Non NYRR Members) / $358 (residents outside of the U.S.) registration fee for entry. Hope Network will provide you with details on how to submit your registration receipt for reimbursement.

What if you get injured or have other extenuating circumstances?

If at any time during your training you become injured or are otherwise unable to participate in the event due to extreme circumstances, you are able to defer your entry to the 2023 race and receive guaranteed entry. If you elect to DEFER your entry to 2023, you may do so, without penalty, if you have achieved your fundraising minimum in the 2022 season. You will be responsible for covering 2023 race registration fees if there are any additional fee increases, but you will not be required to do fundraising again in 2023. Cancellation must be submitted by the day before the first day of the TCS New York City Marathon expo.

If you are injured or otherwise need to be removed from the team, you may withdraw prior to a date in withdraw prior to Wednesday, September 7, 2022. If you are able to find a valid replacement runner approved by Hope Network, you will be released from your fundraising minimum and only held accountable for a $75 registration transfer fee. If you do NOT find a replacement runner for your spot, you will be held to your $2,500 fundraising minimum.

Did you secure your own entry for the TCS New York City Marathon?

Athletes who secured their own entry into the NYC Marathon are highly encouraged to join our marathon team through this registration type. The required fundraising commitment for joining our marathon team with a “self-secured standard registration” for the marathon is $500.
