The world’s most popular marathon
If any marathon can claim to be the most popular in the world without hesitation, it is the New York Marathon. The New York City Marathon, second in reputation only to the Boston Marathon, was established in 1970 and is held every year in early November.
More than 100,000 people took part in the event, which was so spectacular that even the bridge shook. No other marathon attracts as many runners from around the world as the New York Marathon, and the city’s unique charm, race atmosphere, and packed sides of the course keep more and more people joining the race.
If you want to feel the energy and excitement of the city marathon, you must not miss the New York Marathon!!
The New York Marathon started with 127 runners, but has evolved to include more and more runners. It passes through the five major urban areas of New York, crosses five Bridges and ends in Manhattan’s Central Park. It passes through the essence of the modern city of New York and takes in the New York cityscape, which is one of the most beautiful scenery.
