The TCS New York City Marathon 2019 is an annual 42.195km race that takes runners through the five scenic boroughs of the Big Apple: Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan. Recognized as one of the World Marathon Majors, this race has been been run every single year since 1970, save for 2012 when it was called off due to Hurricane Sandy.
The numbers are nothing short of impressive: in 2017, there were 50,773 finishers, the race’s free programs and events benefited over 267,000 youth, and the average finish time was at 4:39:07. But no matter how famous the race is, it’s just as important to highlight the communities it’s impacted.
It might be a tough race to get into, but if you run for charity, you’re given a guaranteed entry while allowing you to change the lives of many others.
