What is the New York City Marathon?
Every year up to 50,000 participants travel from around the world to take on New York City's annual 26.2-mile (42.2-km) footrace through the heart of the Big Apple. It is the largest marathon in the world and it's easy to see why it's so popular.
The beauty of the New York City Marathon is that it winds its way through all five boroughs of the spectacular city—Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan.
Whether you are planning to take on the challenge and run the NYC Marathon or provide some much-needed support from the sidelines, you are in for a treat. Spend the day soaking up the electric atmosphere and watch as the city that never sleeps becomes one big party celebrating triumph and endurance of the human spirit.
