The ING NYC Marathon is an annual New York Event and one of the largest marathons in the world. In 2010, it saw 45,103 finishers, and it is one of the premier long-distance annual running events in the United States.
With the exception of 2012, the race has been run every year since 1970. The ING NYC Marathon attracts professional and amateur runners from around the world, and is a highly-anticipated race among runners from all walks of life.
The initial course for the NYC Marathon circled consistently around Central Park, but today it winds through all 5 boroughs in New York, beginning on Staten Island, near the entrance to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The Bridge is closed to traffic for the event, and after runners cross the bridge they race through Brooklyn for the next 11 miles or so.
Runners pass Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Park Slope, and other neighborhoods, making their way to Long Island City and Queens then on to the East River, Queensboro Bridge, and into Manhattan. The race finishes at Tavern on the Green, and usually takes 8-1/2 hours from start to finish.
You'll be just minutes from the Marathon course when you stay at Hotels in NYC like The Milford.
