TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON, USA

Date: 6th November 2022

The New York City Marathon is big, brash and loud, a shock to your system and your senses, just like the city which hosts it. It's a race you will never forget: the mass start over the two-mile expanse of the Verazzano Narrows Bridge is stunning, the point-to-point route through the five boroughs is like a little cultural tour through New York and it all culminates on the rolling hills of Central Park for an iconic finish. Every runner should experience this event at least once in their lifetime…

The New York City Marathon is big, brash and loud, a shock to your system and your senses, just like the city which hosts it. It's a race you will never forget: the mass start over the two-mile expanse of the Verazzano Narrows Bridge is stunning, the point-to-point route through the five boroughs is like a little cultural tour through New York and it all culminates on the rolling hills of Central Park for an iconic finish. Every runner should experience this event at least once in their lifetime. It's been a long two years since most of us have had the chance to run this marvellous marathon.

Like all the other Marathon Majors, New York fell victim to the COVID pandemic in 2020 and was cancelled. The 2021 event went ahead with a reduced field but without most international runners as the US goverment lifted its travel ban on European travelers the day after the race took place. 

We have been desperate to return to the city and the race. Judging by your e-mails and phone calls, so have many of you. We are delighted to be part of the event's international travel programme once again for 2022. However, it will be a smaller trip than usual. As in 2021 the size of the 2022 race will be limited and as a consequence so will the number of places available to international travel operators like ourselves. With a large number of our available places taken by runners who deferred from 2020, we have only a limited number of new places.

The pacakges are strictly limited and are only available as either full package or hotel and entry pacakges. We no longer have any Flight incusive pacakges available, we now only have hotel and entry packages.

TRANSPORTATION TO THE START

We have previoulsy 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 New York's 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. We'll provide a private transfer direct from the Warwick Hotel to the ferry. This is only available to people who have booked the Warwick Hotel through 2:09 Events.

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.
