Don’t Leave Empty-Handed.

There’s a sea of gear and special edition product that’s inundating both the expo and various stores across New York.

Running the Race?
We’ve got you covered.

If you’re running the race, then you definitely know that there’s quite a lot of preparation involved for such a feat – both physically and mentally. Aside from the ability to actually run the race, there are many other things to consider, particularly if you’re traveling from afar to participate. Our team of experts and veteran race finishers have compiled some useful content to aid in your journey to and through New York.

the Definitive NYC Playlist for the Big Race

Running 26.2 miles through the Five Boroughs is quite an experience – be sure to equip your ear buds with the musical tunes from New York City’s most popular artists. To make this task easy for you, we’ve compiled 26 songs from some of the Big Apple’s finest, into a Spotify playlist.

This quintessential collection of high-energy jams is designed to enhance the experience of running 26.2 miles in the City that Never Sleeps. Enjoy the stylings of hometown heroes, as well as a few clichéd topical tunes peppered in the mix, while your feet propel you through the city’s streets!

the Real Runners
of New York City

We all know the headliners, the pro athletes, the masters of their sport. Then there is the rest of the field, who might be many paces behind, but in turn, bring their own personal stories to the streets and avenues of The Big Apple.

Meet a handful of athletes heading to New York. JackRabbit will be cheering for them all the 26.2 miles.
