Comfort Zone Camp is proud to be an official charity partner of the TCS New York City Marathon! 

Through our partnership with New York Road Runners, we have guaranteed paid entries for a team of 5 runners who are willing to run the full marathon and fundraise for Comfort Zone Camp!

RACE: 2023 TCS New York City Marathon

DATE: Sunday, November 5, 2023


The TCS New York City Marathon course runs 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of NYC – Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Manhattan. With just over 45,000 finishers each year, the New York City Marathon is the largest marathon in the world. It’s also one of the most difficult courses of the major Marathons with deceptively hilly bridges, a tough finish through Central Park, and screaming crowds that can make your adrenaline surge with excitement. Running the NYC Marathon for Comfort Zone Camp requires serious time, energy, and dedication.

FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT:  $3,500 (6 kids); $5,000 (1 Healing Circle)

Submit your application and share why YOU should be selected as one of our 5 runners.  

*All applications are due by April 7th.

Runners for the CZC’s Grief Relief team will enjoy the benefits of being part of our amazing network of support, from the first step to the last mile!

Comfort Zone Camp team members who accept one of our guaranteed and paid entries must commit to raising a minimum of $3,500/$5,000 by race day to support our programs.
