This sounds fantastic! I can't wait to get signed up for 2018. I ran in 1998 and 2008, so this is my third chance to do one of the greatest marathons in the world!

Definitely a running experience everyone should try at least once.
If I was to do it again, I'd arrive on the Wednesday to get to the expo before the masses!

Hi Graham, We can't agree with you more! Good advice regarding the expo, however this year we had a group go on Saturday and it was really quiet. We think the majority of runners go on Friday morning! Thanks Ross

What a fantastic event. I'd never run overseas before and travelling alone I was a bit apprehensive, but I was thoroughly looked after by the Sports Tours team, right through from the booking too the race day itself. the New York marathon is certainly a all inspiring experience, and despite tweeking my hamstring at mile 11 and battling round it took nothing away from a magical day. My hotel was in a great location for the marathon & to visit the sights of New York. After this I went on to Philadelphia and took part in the annual Rocky Run (you should add this to the repitoir !!). If i could afford it i would love to do it all again, maybe I should become a Sports Tours Rep !!. Many thanks Tim Tickner
