On Sunday, November 5, runners from all over the world will take to the city streets from the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon. Race director Ted Metellus told The New York Times that interest has rebounded since the pandemic – over 125,000 people entered the drawing for 50,000 spots in the marathon, up from 89,000 last year. This year’s celebrity entrants include Grammy and Tony Award-winning actress Patina Miller, Good Morning America host Robin Roberts, news anchor David Muir, hockey star Zdeno Chara, actor Luke Mcfarlane, and Catfish host Nev Schulman, all of whom are running for charity.
The marathon will air on ESPN2, and supporters all over the world can watch and track runners via an app. However, there is no substitution for being there in person. A walk down streets along the marathon route shows creative signs, cheering crowds, and restaurants and bars 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.

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.

Fifth Avenue, Harlem - Upper East Side
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.
