November is a very special month of the year. Getting so close to the end, yet there is still so much to do! Let’s get to celebrating and take a look at some of the events you can do this month!
NYC Marathon (Staten Island - Central Park, NY @ 9:50 AM)
Dedicated athletes have spent all year training for this moment to run in the 26.2-mile course through every borough in New York City.
Starting from Staten Island on the west end of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, through Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx, and then back to Central Park Manhattan, the marathon really pushes people to their limit.
Come run in the event or come cheer and support for the runners, because this event is not something to miss out on.
