This is a great experience. It will be crowded (16K runners this year), but for the most part, the course allows room to run (only one section where it was tight). The route around and through the parks is awesome for scenery as well as cheering sections – great crowds throughout the race. Weather can be up or down; this year was great (around 55F). If you are looking for a destination run, I would recommend this one.

An awesome experience. The attention to details and personal touches from the race organizers (Traveling Fit) were great. My first “destination” run, this will be hard to top. If you want something unique, this is it.

You’ll need to enter the lottery to get in, but there are also fundraising options. It is a great experience, one of only 2 days where they close Times Square – you’ll run right through it! It can be cold (it was this year), but the course is pretty fair and only has a few undulations, nothing really of a “hill” nature. I will look to run again in future.

First time where they split the Half from the Full, moving former to Saturday and creating a new course. There are some difficult spots – HILLS – but it is a mostly fair course. You get a nice view of the city and surrounding parks. Security can be a bit much, so ARRIVE EARLY! Looking forward to 2017.
