Take a guided tour of the TCS New York City Marathon through Central Park. Whether you are running, or are a friend or family member supporting a marathoner, you’ll won’t be able to enjoy it on race day.
This special Marathon Tour with a Central Park expert guide is just once a year, just like the marathon itself. The tour traces the route from the spot where runners enter the Park to the finish line, about the history and stories behind sites the runners will whisk right by. Tour highlights include the Reservoir, Obelisk (Cleopatra’s Needle), Literary Walk, and Sheep Meadow.
The Central Park Marathon Tour is Friday, October 30th, 2pm to 3:30pm. Tickets are required, and you should wear comfortable walking shoes. Tickets are $15. Purchase tickets here.
The NYC Marathon is Sunday, November 1st. Official TCS New York City Marathon website.
