Two things to note about the race:
On TCS New York City Marathon Saturday, the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K and USATF 5K Championships (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.
Leading the way will be the 2017 USATF 5K Championships for men and women, featuring Team USA Olympians and national record-holders, vying for a record $60,000 in prize money and the title of USA Champion.
Please note: Only U.S. citizens who have met the established qualifying standards are eligible for entry in the USATF 5K Championships. The USATF 5K Championships will begin at 8:30 a.m., 15 minutes prior to the start of the Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K.
