TCS New York City Marathon

Each year on the first Sunday of November, more than 50,000 runners line up at the base of the Verrazano Bridge to take on the largest marathon in the world. From Staten Island to Manhattan through all five boroughs, runners are guided through the streets of New York City with the help of tens of thousands of spectators along the entire route. Join Team ALS and cross this race off your bucket list!

United Airlines NYC Half

The United Airlines NYC Half is a 13.1-mile journey that begins in Brooklyn, goes over the Manhattan Bridge, heads north on the FDR Drive, zips through Times Square (only 1 of 2 times it is closed each year!), and finishes in Central Park.

Bike Tour

TD Five Boro Bike Tour

Each May, cyclists of all skill levels come from around the world to ride through all five boroughs of New York City on streets totally free of cars. For one day, the roads are yours, the bridges are yours, and the city is yours – there is no better way to experience NYC.
