TCS New York City Marathon 2017

The New York City marathon is scheduled to kickoff on Sunday. Residents and visitors alike are gearing up to participate in the main event, which is set to have more than 50,000 runners and 2.5 million watchers in attendance. First launching in 1970 at Central Park, the 47th annual event is a highly anticipated affair.

The marathon is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. EST with wheelchair contestants, which will be followed by handcyclists at 8:52 a.m. Professional female runners will start their race at 9:20 a.m., with professional male racers to run at 9:50 a.m. The remaining participants run will commence after the professional men at 9:50 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 10:40 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Participants and interested viewers should prepare to arrive early, as there is a full lineup of activitiesscheduled ahead of Sunday’s race. MTA has published a map to provide guidance to runners and watchers as they maneuver around the city by bus or train. Public transportation has been recommended as the best option for getting to pre-race events, the starting point and official viewing locations.

In less than 24 hours, thousands of ambitious runners will embark on a grueling 26.2-mile course as they tackle the annual TCS NYC Marathon. The first wave of runners will take off at 8:30 a.m., beginning in Staten Island and making their way through each borough before ending at the southern end of Central Park.

Earlier this week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that additional security measures will be put in place for this year’s marathon in the wake of this week’s attack on pedestrians at the West Side Highway. Resources from the New York state police and the National Guard, along with MTA and Port Authority officers will accompany the NYPD in ensuring safety during the event.

The official marathon website has put out a detailed spectator’s guide, but if you’re not really feeling the motivation to cheer alongside flocks of people, you can watch the parade from the comforts of your own home.

The marathon will broadcast live coverage on ABC7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. while the channel’s website will livestream the entire race. Runner’s World will be offering commentary on Twitter, and we can almost guarantee that there will be a plethora of Facebook and Instagram livestreams to capture all of the action, so just keep a look out for them.
