TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON, USA

Date: 1st November, 2020

The TCS New York City Marathon is the big daddy of big city marathons. It is the running manifestation of the city that hosts the event. It's big, it's brash and it's loud. With more than 50,000 finishers every year it is officiallly the world's biggest marathon and with runners from 125 different countries taking part in 2019, it is also the world's most international race.  It was always a must-have race on any marathon running CV but it has become doubly so with the establishment of the Abbo…

The TCS New York City Marathon is the big daddy of big city marathons. It is the running manifestation of the city that hosts the event. It's big, it's brash and it's loud. With more than 50,000 finishers every year it is officiallly the world's biggest marathon and with runners from 125 different countries taking part in 2019, it is also the world's most international race. 

It was always a must-have race on any marathon running CV but it has become doubly so with the establishment of the Abbott Marathon Majors, of which the NYC Marthon was a founder member. 

There will be even more reason to run the race in 2020 as it is the 50th anniversary of the event. The New York Road Runners, the club which organises the event, are promising to throw one heck of a running party to celebrate.

If ever there was a year to run the TCS New York City Marathon 2020 is it. 

As an approved International Tour Operator (ITO) for the TCS New York City Marathon we have a number of guaranteed entries for the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon, which are available with one of our travel packages.

YOUR GUARANTEED RACE ENTRY

2:09 Events are an official International Tour Operator (ITO) of the TCS New York City Marathon® and have an allocation of guaranteed race entries - these are available to runners taking a travel package with us. We are not permitted to sell entry only. If you are interested in entry only you shoudl enter the ballot, which is open from January 30 to February 13, on www.tcsnycmarathon.org). Such is the expected demand for the 2020 race that we can not be certain we will still have guaranteed entries after the ballot has been drawn at the end of February.

Your race entry fee includes the following:

  • Entrance to the TCS New York City Marathon Health and Fitness Expo
  • Race T-shirt
  • Results Magazine
  • International Parade of Nations and Fireworks in Central Park
  • GUARANTEED ENTRY TO THE TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON®
  • GUARANTEED RACE Entry fee: US$600

There is strictly no entry only available through the International Tour Operator scheme.

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 theStaten 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 from the hotel to the ferry. This is only available to people who have booked the Warwick Hotel through 2:09 Events.

Those opting for a 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.

SPECIAL OFFER 

If you book one of our full hotel and flight packages or a hotel-only package in 2019, we will honour the 2019 prices listed below. Those prices will increase from January 1, 2020

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 30-40 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.

Supporters can also buy a ticket for the Dash to the Finish Run (online at www.TCSNYCMarathon.org), which is a fun run from the United Nations building to Central Park on the Saturday before the marathon. Partner tickets are also available for the Barilla Marathon Eve Dinner at the Tavern on the Green for the traditional carbo-loading per-marathon meal.

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. Please contact us on sales@209events.com if you are interested in this option
