Run through Times Square in New York City with the RUN FOR AUTISM team at the United Airlines NYC Half on March 17. What’s better than a run on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City? This half marathon is one of two times in the whole year that Times Square is closed off for an event. The 13.1-mile journey begins in Brooklyn, goes over the Manhattan Bridge, heads north on FDR Drive, zips through Time Square and finishes in Central Park. Join our team today to run the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half through the Big Apple. 

If what you want is a challenge with scenery, the RUN FOR AUTISM team has your event: the Big Sur International Marathon on April 28. This bucket-list race is a point-to-point course run on scenic Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel. You’ll see towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains, and verdant pastures as you run this course. The centerpiece is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point, where a tuxedoed musician playing a Yamaha Baby Grand Piano will serenade you.  OAR has limited entries into the 2024 Big Sur International Marathon so sign up today to secure your entry.
