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 incredible experience of running New York, but you could be enjoying up to two weeks to take in the sights and perhaps do a bit of Christmas shopping!

This is a simply must do on the bucket list of life – run it in support of The National Autistic Society and make a difference to autistic people and their families.

Sam’s running the New York City Marathon with us this November – read what he’s got up his sleeve to summon his Super Hero strength.
