The TCS New York City Marathon is the iconic road race set to the famous backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.

Over 50,000 runners will take to the start line at Staten Island before running through all five boroughs of New York City. The race day atmosphere is simply indescribable as two million people cheer you on. Your marathon will be a spine-tingling experience from start line to the finish line in the beautiful oasis of Central Park in the middle of Manhattan.

Not only will you have the sense of achievement and the bucket list experience of running through New York, but you could be enjoying up to two weeks to take in the sights and perhaps do a bit of Christmas shopping! Most importantly, by taking on this challenge you'll be making a huge difference to the lives of autistic people and their families.
