Southdownsman, do you have your entry already secured for the NYC marathon? Because if not, as someone coming from abroad, you'd have to enter through a tour operator and purchase some package combination ( they don't do just the race entry on it's own). I ended up doing the flight/entry combo, and have organised my own accomodation using AirBNB. The entry cost for the marathon alone is quite expensive, and the rest of the fee was pretty comparable to what I would've been paying for a flight on it's own at that time anyways.
I've entered the half for this one, to check off one of the runs in my next marathon training cycle
Emmy, the cut-off time is 6hrs for both the full and the half. HannahsmomUK, the flyer says "the marathon/half heads out towards Putney Bridge and back whilst the half goes towards Teddington Lock and back." So, I'm not exactly sure what it means by "marathon/half"--maybe they do one half towards Putney Bridge and then the second half towards Teddington Lock to complete the full? I've only signed up for the half, so I'll just go wherever they tell me on the day
No More Nails, I did take a look at it but I wouldn't make the cut-off time! Marathoners have to hit the half at 2:15, and as it is my HM PR is 2:18 (I did the first half of Barca in 2:20)! ;D I'm eyeing up Lucerne at the moment, which has a 5:30 time limit, which gives me slight bit more comfort
I got the email notification today from Marathon-Photos saying that pics were up...hilariously enough, the photographer who I leaped around to avoid stumbling over managed to take a picture of me. NOT ATTRACTIVE BUDDY.
