Resolution runners who plan to target a top international event as a focus for improvement in 2014 should look no further than the 'daddy' of the marathon scene - New York City Marathon. The 'blue riband' of 26.2 mile races is set for Sunday 2 November this year and 50,000 will take part.
There is a new event sponsor in TCS and the 2014 could see Kenyan ace Geoffrey Mutai aim for a third consecutive win which would be a remarkable achievement in the ultra-competitive world of modern marathon running. Success for Mutai would mean the first triple winner in New York since Alberto Salazar over 30 years ago.
You can be part of the big event in the Big Apple and reserve your place for TCS New York City Marathon with specialist travel company, Sports Tours International. Sports Tours is holding 2013 price levels, and are also offering a 'Double Discount' for bookings before 31 January with £50 off entry fees plus £50 off travel package.
