Sorry to start a new thread - I couldn't find one about the New York marathon anywhere....
Has anyone signed up to do the New York marathon through the travel partners to get a guaranteed place? Has anyone done it before - are they any good?
I've heard good things about the travel partners but can't say anything else as never used them.
I got an auto qualify for this year!
I'm thinking about Sports Tours International even though I have a place via the ballot. I've never been to NY before and am very anxious about getting to the start and I think they sort all this kind of stuff out for you.
Well - I decided to go ahead and try it, so i`ve booked a place with sports international. I looked through all their terms and it looks fine. So now i`m just excited about actually being there . Sounds like a super early start though - buses to the start line at 6am!!!
Hi, I booked flight and entry with Sports Tours in 2010 as I didn't get a place in the ballot. It was literally just flight and entry - but it all worked.
Susan - I think if you have a place in the ballot that includes the bus to the start, from various pick-up points in (and possibly around) Manhattan. If you are looking for accommodation as well as flights then it's probably worth checking the operators out; if its just a flight you need then you're probably just as well booking your own - cheaper and more flexibility around when you travel.
Good to hear that you`ve used them before and all was OK.
Susan - agree with Spam - I think everyone who has a place gets free transport to the start. The website says something about registering for that in June.
