ING New York City Marathon

ING New York City Marathon


Congratulations to our 2008 team


On Sunday 2 November, six fabulous runners completed this world famous marathon for Refuge. A huge thank you to them for taking part and to everyone who sponsored them. The team has so far raised over £6,500 with more funds still to come.


Refuge does not have any guaranteed places for 2009 but offers full support to anyone who secures their own place!


As a Refuge runner, we would offer you a fundraising pack full of information about Refuge and great tips to kick-start your fundraising, a free professional running vest, your own personalised online fundraising page and one to one support every step of the way.


Runners interested in securing their own place can apply through the official ballot when it opens at There is also the option to purchase a package with an overseas tour operator, giving you guaranteed entry and flights/accommodation. Please contact us for details.


If you’re interested in an overseas marathon closer to home, we do have places for the fantastic Berlin marathon at the end of September which, like New York, is part of the ‘World Marathon Majors’ series.
