Important info for NYC Marathon runners!


Good luck to all of the Empire Tri Club runners who will be participating in the NYC Marathon this weekend!  Some of you have run this iconic NYC race several times, while others will be toeing the line for the first time on Sunday.



To help Empire members connect with one another, we have established a team meet up location at the start of the race, and created a group on our Forum so you can chat it up!



Our team meet up location is in Staten Island in the “Open Zone” by the runners stage.  It is centrally located between all of the colored zones, and in close proximity to the starting line on the Varrazano Narrows Bridge.  View Map. We recommend you share cell phone numbers with your teammates and check the Empire Facebook Page frequently, as the Start Map is subject to change, and it may be challenging to find people amongst a sea of thousands of runners.



If you are a NYC Marathon veteran, help out a first timer by offering advice for how to navigate through the expo, pick up your race packet, get to the race, what to bring, and other things you wish you knew before YOUR first marathon!  Start posting.



Empire Run Singlets have arrived!  If you pre-ordered a singlet, they will be available to pick up on Tuesday 11/1 at Jackrabbit’s UWS store at 7pm, or Thursday 11/3 at the NY Running Company before / after the run.  If you cannot make it either of these nights and would like your singlet for this weekend, please contact to coordinate another meet up. Singlets are black with white/red print.  Please bring $30 cash or check.  If you did not pre-order a singlet, there may be a handful still available so contact Alison for availability!
