WHY NEW YORK
If you run, then The ING New York City Marathon ® should be at the top of your list. The city is big, brash and exciting – the marathon is equally so. You will run through a melting pot of ethnic and cultural influences as you leave suburban Staten Island, run through Brooklyn and Queens before crossing into Manhattan, briefly pass through the Bronx and finish in Central Park.
The crowds are the best, the loudest, the most fun – simply they are New Yorkers and they are determined to welcome ‘the World to Run’™ as the New York Road Runner’s are proud to claim. And we believe this is still so despite the problems of the 2012 edition when Hurricane Sandy thwatted the event.
