ENTRIES HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR 2021, WE WILL OPEN OUR 2022 PACKAGES FOR SALE TOWARDS THE END OF NOVEMBER

Like all the other Marathon Majors, the 2020 New York City Marathon fell victim to the COVID pandemic and had to be cancelled. With the vast majority of the US population now vaccinated against COVID, New York started to return to some normality during the late spring and early summer with bars, restaurants and hotels reopening. 

The next stage of the city's reopening will be full crowds at baseball and football matches quickly followed by the 50th running of the New York City Marathon, which has been confirmed as Sunday November 7th. It will be run on a smaller scale than usual, but New York doesn't do anything in small measures so even a 'small-scale' New York will be a huge proposition with a projected field of 33,000 runners.

That number, reduced from the usual 50,000 field is a necessary caution to allow some social distancing with the waves at the start and around the finish area on Central Park West. The crowds may also be smaller and a little less vocal but for any runner it's still going to be an unbelievable experience as you complete an iconic marathon route that takes in all five New York boroughs from the start on Staten Island to the finish in midtown Manhattan. 

Our original 2020 trip sold out months in advance, long before COVID was part of everyone's vocabulary. Many of those runners have moved those packages to 2021 but inevitably some have cancelled so we have a few packages with guaranteed entries now available. The pacakges are strictly limited and are only available as either full package or hotel and entry pacakges. We no longer have an Flight and Entry pacakges available.

TRANSPORTATION TO THE START

In 2019 we used the Midtown Ferry, which is the quickest way to the start and also means you can leave the hotel much later than other start transport options. That is a considerable advantage on a point-to-point course. If you have to use the buses or the Staten Island ferry you can be dropped at the start three or four hours before you are due to run. On the Midtown Ferry, you can cut that wait time to closer to an hour. For clients on our Warwick Hotel package, we'll provide a private transfer direct from the hotel to the ferry. This is only available to people who have booked the Warwick Hotel through 2:09 Events.

Those on flight & entry arrangements will be able to choose from the two official NYCM transportation. The options are a bus from the New York Public Library at 5th Avenue 42nd Street, or the Staten Island Ferry, these are managed by New York Road Runners and timing will be allocated according to your start wave.

PARTNERS, FAMILY & FRIENDS

If you are travelling with non-runners you need not worry about them on race day. They are invited to walk down with us to our spectator spot on First Avenue between the 16 and 17-mile points. We walk as a group from our hotel and we generally have 20-30 people in the group. From First Avenue, it's a short walk up to Central Park where your supporters can see you come through at 25 miles near Central Park Zoo.

SINGLE TRAVELLERS

To keep your costs down we can twin sole travellers with another person of the same sex on the 2:09 Events tour staying in the room for the same duration.  Twin to share runners are single runners who pay the Twin Room price instead of the Single Room price, which is a considerable saving on New York hotel room costs. This option is only available for standard 3, 4 or 5 day periods over the marathon weekend and is not available for extended periods before and after the marathon, when single-room rates will apply. The twin to share option is not available for Premier Plus rooms or suites. Since we have limited number of places now available for sale we can't guarantee that we will be able to find you a twin share, but we will try. Please contact us on sales@209events.com if you are interested in this option
