Join us for the start of something special! Just one week before the TCS New York City Marathon, this race travels the roads of Central Park and ends at the Marathon finish line, with Poland Spring brand water available on the course and in the post-finish area.
Event hashtag: #PolandSpringKickoff—use it in your public tweets, Instagrams, and Facebook posts!
Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.
