Be a part of the world-famous TCS New York City Marathon excitement, run through the streets of Manhattan, and finish at the famed Marathon finish line in Central Park—without running 26.2 miles!
On Marathon Saturday, our NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K (3.1 miles) will take place for all runners who want to join in the marathon festivities. You can take a high-speed tour of midtown Manhattan—en route to a spectacular finish in Central Park. Friends and family, marathoners and non-marathoners—all are welcome. All entrants receive a technical T-shirt.
Use MTA Trip Planner to plan your trip.
