Team CatWalk 2018 New York Marathon

When: November 4th 2018


The TCS New York City Marathon has grown to become the world's largest and most popular marathon. The inaugural race in Central Park in 1970 had 127 starting participants, of which only 55 men finished and the sole female entrant dropped out due to illness. Fast-forward to 2016 and more than 50,000 runners finished the race, more than two million spectators cheered them along, and 315 million people viewed it on worldwide television.


This year our irrepressible team leader, Dave Pretorius, who is about to run his 4th New York Marathon for CatWalk, has persuaded a large number of athletes and supporters to dig into their hard-earned savings to buy a ticket to New York and join the team running to raise funds for the CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury ResearchTrust. It's a huge commitment by all our participants, so please support these wonderful individuals who make upTeam CatWalk 2018… running so others can walk.


The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005, registration number CC27170

The CatWalk Trust is committed to a world where spinal cord injury will not mean paralysis for life.
