Important Security Note
(implemented since 2014)

1. All runners and spectators will be screened upon entering the buses that will take you on the runway to the Race Starting Point and Spectators’ Viewing Area.

2. No backpacks, ladies’ pocketbooks, or other types of bags will be allowed on the buses. We have a special secure holding area where all personal items can be checked in. (See Question/Answer #015 in our FAQ.)

3. No cameras will be allowed on the buses. These items must be checked in. (Smartphones are fine.)

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, however, this information was given to us by the officials that are in charge of security at JFK Airport. We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Thank you.

If you’re new to this event (welcome!) and have questions, please feel free to browse through this website and also check out our huge Frequently Asked Questions page. Contact us if you don’t see your question(s) answered.

As always, we appreciate your support. Proceeds from the race are distributed to charities that we support. Thank you very much.

There’s a video of the race too! Video on YouTube (by Elitefeats)

We have imported the results and photographs from Elitefeats to our website. The photographs are in chronological order. Some photos from our staff are here too.

On behalf of the charities that benefit from this event, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to those that attended, participated, and/or volunteered with us. The weather was very chilly and not exactly gorgeous, but from what we were told, most of you had a great time!

You all are wonderful people for bringing a big success to this event.

Thank you very much again. We hope to see you again next year!
