Can’t wait for Santa to drop down your chimney? Then join him on the piste!

New York Marathon kicks off from Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island before crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Brooklyn. It then travels up to Queens and turns left to cross the East River on Queensboro Bridge. Upon reaching Manhattan the route goes through the Upper East Side to the Bronx, then down again through Central Park to finish near Central Park Lake.
Following this circuit, you pass through 4 of the 5 boroughs and also touch on Harlem as you pass down 5th Avenue. That’s some serious ground you’re covering. The length of this route, though; it’s massive…it must be at least 26 miles.
Welcome to our Ultimate guide to New York City Marathon.

Strip off your clothes and strap on your dancing shoes for Europe’s largest free carnival.
