Last year, the TCS New York City Marathon was limited to 30,000 runners as the city and public events started to come back after a year of pandemic-induced closures. This year, though, registration is back up to 50,000 and includes elite athletes, intrepid amateurs, and celebrities running for charity; this year's famous entrants include Ashton Kutcher, Ellie Kemper, Tiki Barber, Amy Robach, and Nev Schulman. They will take to the streets on Sunday, November 6.
The marathon is an exciting time for runners who have been training for the event all year long. It is also an exciting time for spectators all over the city – on any given year (except 2020), a walk down streets on the marathon route shows creative signage, cheering crowds, and restaurants with cowbells on the tables.

With the exception of the grandstand seats at the finish line, the marathon is free to attend and cheer. Some people make an event of it by making a special trip to a popular location to watch. For others, the marathon is practically right out the front door, if not visible from the window.

Fourth Avenue
After the marathon kicks off in Staten Island, the runners enter Brooklyn off the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge and run through the borough before getting on the Pulaski Bridge into Queens. This means there is no shortage of neighborhoods to see the race.

First Avenue
When the runners enter Manhattan from the Queensboro Bridge, the course takes them down First Avenue from 59th Street to 125th Street. This stretch is one of the loudest and most popular for spectators.

Fifth Avenue
After the Bronx section, the course runs along Fifth Avenue before the athletes enter Central Park at East 90th Street. As this part is slanted uphill, it is one of the most challenging for runners. However, it is also one of the most scenic between fabulous architecture and beautiful trees.

Central Park South
If you want to encourage athletes by shouting, "You're almost there!" this is the place to do it: The runners leave Central Park at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street to run along the street before re-entering at Columbus Circle near the finish line.
