YOUR BOOKING DETAILS
Your booking details will be listed on your deposit invoice, your final invoice and in a separate email that is sent out to everyone. It is your responsibility to read what I send you and let me know if there are any errors or changes.
HOTEL CHANGES/DATES OF STAY CHANGES
To ensure you don’t have to move rooms or hotels, please request your additional nights as soon as possible. Hotels will sell out! It is not possible to cancel nights any more.
RACE BIB COLLECTION
Each runner must pick up their own marathon bib at the race expo using their Confirmation Form and either their driver’s license or their passport. There is no race day bib collection.
Click here for more information on the Confirmation Forms.
These are required to pick up your bib from the expo and are available to download from your account at www.nyrr.org. Your confirmation form includes your race number pickup date and time, start corral, wave start, race (bib) number, and other information.
CHOOSING YOUR EXPO TIME
In August you will be able to choose a time that you want to go to the race expo to collect your marathon and/or their 5K bib/materials by logging into your NYRR account. Click here for more details.
TRANSPORTATION TIMES/TIMING/WHAT TO DO AT THE START
Everyone will have the opportunity to choose their preferred transportation method to the start area in August by logging into their NYRR account. The three options will be:
1 – bus from Bryant Park (most selected). Buses go straight to the start area and take around 45 minutes.
2 – East 34th Street Ferry. You’ll need to take both a ferry and then a bus, but all will be set up by the NYRR.
3 – Staten Island Ferry. You’ll need to take both a ferry and then a bus.
Each runner will be responsible for getting to their preferred choice on their own. All hotels are walking distances to the buses (2 – 15 minutes, depending on your hotel) and East 34th Street Ferry, although the ferry is much further away (30-40 minutes).
Keep in mind that whether you travel by bus or by ferry, it can take around 90 minutes for you to arrive and get through security. Note that times may vary depending on what time you depart, queue’s, etc so this is a rough estimate. Once you arrive you can expect to take another hour to find your Staging Area and corral, find and use the port-o-potties assuming there are no lines. If there are, expect another 10 – 20 minutes.
