The TCS New York Marathon is an Abbott World Marathon Majors race. In a single event, the TCS New York City Marathon has brought in more than 52,000 finishers from 125 countries. It begins on Staten Island and finishing in Central Park you will run through each of the five boroughs: Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan.

More than one million spectators and thousands of volunteers line the city streets in support of the runners, while millions more watch the television broadcast in 175 countries and territories. It is a race that is opened to both amateur and professional athletes alike.

Due to the popularity of the race and the infamy of it, participation is based solely on a lottery system, which makes it a very exclusive event. This is where ActiveXplorers.com as an International Partner (ITP) for the TCS New York Marathon, we provide Guaranteed Entries for our runners and guests.

Race morning also features the Rising New York Road Runners Youth Invitational at the TCS New York City Marathon, a race within Central Park that ends at the marathon finish line.
