Attend Can’t-Miss Events Surrounding the TCS Marathon.
The world’s largest marathon returns in 2016 in full force and thousands upon thousands of runners will be joining the fray and heading for the finish in what is sure to be a great run for New York City Marathon Weekend.
Sunday, November 6, starting in Staten Island, make sure you’re warmed up and ready to get moving. Meanwhile, gear up for some great events surrounding the race that you shouldn’t miss.
The marathon kicks off with the Opening Ceremony. This evening event features the Parade of Nations, which celebrates the diversity of runners who participate. Stay after the parade for a fireworks show.
NYRR Night of Champions
This benefit supports the New York Road Runners’ (NYRR’s) youth and community programs with an elegant reception, which includes a menu by local chefs, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, live music entertainment, and featured runners and Olympic athletes.
Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K
Join the TCS Marathon without the 26.2-mile run. This race will let you experience some of the same race route as the marathon, not to mention cross the famed finish line. This is a great event for runners who aren’t quite ready for longer distances.
NYRR Youth Jamboree
This fun, free event is perfect for kids of all ages who love to run. There will be all kinds of races, relays, dashes, and field events to join.
There will also be a Health & Wellness Expo for all kinds of fitness gear and nutrition, plus a Poland Spring Marathon Kickoff to gear up for the big race.
We invite you to book your stay with us at The Manhattan Club if you’re going to be in the area to route on your favorite runner for the Marathon or any surrounding events. We wish everyone participating in the race good luck!
