Sports Tours International would like extend our deepest sympathies to the victims, their families, and all who have been affected by the tragedy in Lower Manhattan yesterday.
We have just received an update from New York Road Runners (NYRR) who have informed us that they are working tirelessly to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon this weekend.
They are monitoring the situation closely with their city, state and federal agency partners and the local law enforcement agencies. The safety and security of all runners, staff, volunteers, and spectators is their top priority and they are constantly reviewing plans with local law enforcement agencies and will consider any necessary modifications or enhancements.
They have confirmed that all race week activities will continue as planned.
As the longest serving International Travel Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, we wish everyone travelling to the city for the race a safe journey.
