Running 13.1 Miles for Row New York: Meet Ethan Zubkoff

Running 13.1 Miles for Row New York: Meet Ethan Zubkoff

The United Airlines NYC Half Marathon is just around the corner and training is underway. Each year, Row New York is lucky to have amazing people run the half marathon for our charity team. Each runner is tasked with 13.1 miles and raising $1,500 on CrowdRise for Row New York.

In the act of running and fundraising, they help support Row New York’s year-round free rowing and academic programs and our free adaptive rowing programs for youth and adults with cognitive and physical disabilities.

This year’s run is slated for March 19th and we are excited to highlight each of our runners over the coming weeks (and share the inside scoop on the best places to run in New York City!). To kickoff our runner highlights, today we present Ethan Zubkoff.
