TCS New York City Marathon

New York City

This festive race, which can feel like a 26.2-mile block party, starts in Staten Island and ends in Central Park. More than 50,000 people will run through all five boroughs of New York City, taking in the skylines (and the spirit) of the metropolis. Some would say that crossing the Verrazano Bridge, the iconic starting point of the race, is epic. But the hits keep coming as you make your way through the city: You'll also see historic landmarks like the Chrysler Building, and new additions such as Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.(tcsnycmarathon.org)
