Final 10 miles of the TCS NYC Marathon courseO

ctober 22, 2017. this is it the final 10 miles of the NYC Marathon and we’re running it to get an understanding of what the last 10 miles will feel like. We’re beginning on 59th Street and 1st ave and heading north to The Bronx and back into Manhattan down 5th Ave. into the park and to the finish line.

Since we are running along city streets everyone is to obey traffic signals and be alert to approaching vehicles. This is not a speed run but a run  to become familiar with the terrain of the last 10 miles. many experienced marathoners have said that the emotions along 1st ave from 59th street north can cause you to run too fast making it difficult to finish strong.  Also runners who do not run 1st ave smart will find the 125th st bridge a bigger challenge than the 59th St bridge.

There will be an aid stations on 116th at 1st ave, 116th st and 5th ave and in the Bronx with water, Gatorade and fruits plus a recovery bag at the end of the run.




It was a great group run! I needed this 20-mile to ensure I am ready for NYCM2015.
I can not thank you Stephen and Run2Live support staff enough. My 1st marathon and due to the training plan, support of Run2Live family I am READY for the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon. That 20 mile run..... love love love it. This is EPIC
I got more than what I expected. Stephen provided coaching and tips the entire way! I learned so much! My pacer was awesome. No one was left behind. He was everything from a pacer, to an encourager, even a crossing guard at intersections. I will definitely continue to run with Run2Live. This was the best group run I've ever had! Thank you so much!

It's amazing to run with a group. You're all going through a very difficult trial together. Its like running with family... We all encourage each other every step of the way... The cramped legs... The sweat... The pain... It's all worth it. Especially when you finish your run with the same people you started with.
I just want to say THANK YOU for such a great 20 Mile 5 Bridges Run. My team coach Sean/Shawn (not sure of spelling) was amazing! I ran with a great group of 4 men. They were so supportive and encouraging. I can’t thank everyone enough for this experience. I would never have challenged myself if it were not for Run2LIVE! Yes I did stop at the 16 Mile mark but I crossed each bridge! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!
Running the last 10 miles of the marathon route with Run2Live was great! I really can't say that there are improvements to be made. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this run with the group. Coach Jackson and his staff were very friendly and welcoming. The last 10 miles of the NYC marathon route was excellent and just what I needed to give me the confidence builder to run the marathon on November 2nd.
This was my first bridge experience and I must say I really enjoyed it! Thank you for being so on point because it really calmed my nerves.
Run2Live has been an absolute blessing in my life. There is no way I would have been able to get to this point in my running career and prepare for my first Marathon without the help of Coach Jackson and his wonderful dedication to myself and my running team mates. I was a bit apprehensive when joining since I am based upstate NY and the coach and most of my running team are based in NYC, but Coach Jackson was able to direct and guide me as if I were there in person, which was a blessing. I am looking forward to the time of my life with confidence at the NYC Marathon and look forward to pursuing and achieving other running goals thereafter.
