Don't Wait for the Lottery Results!

Only an extremely small percentage of people will win the NYC Marathon Lottery. If you wait to see if you won before purchasing one of our packages then you may miss out on the opportunity of running altogether as we tend to sell out quickly.

Instead of waiting, if you purchase one of our Runner's Packages and then win the lottery in the same year then you may switch from a Runners Package to a Spectators Package to save the race entry fee! This way you are guaranteed to run and you won't pay twice!


We will provide guaranteed entry only as part of a complete package which, at a minimum, must include 3 nights. We can provide you with airfare options as well if you wish with no service fees! No Tour Operators are permitted to sell entry only.

Looking for a Roommate?

If you are looking to save some money and have Dream Travel try and find you a same-sex roommate, please indicate this at the time of registration. Although this is not a guaranteed service we tend to find roommates for everyone who lets us know prior to July 1st, and, the sooner you register the better your chances.

After You Apply

After you apply Dream Travel will contact you to complete your registration process via the email address you provided. You must complete and return the forms issued to you before you are issued a guaranteed entry.


Protect yourself and your money by purchasing our Group Insurance through Manulife. Due to the costs associated with this trip and because you will not be traveling until November, we highly recommend purchasing our inexpensive travel insurance. With paid insurance you will be able to cancel for insurable reasons as well as running injuries while training! Insurance covers: Cancellation, Interruption, Medical and Baggage. For full details on coverage, please click here: Manulife Financial.

Please note that the insurance coverage that you may have on your credit card will not cover you completely! We are unable to process insurance for those living in Quebec - please contact your local travel agency for coverage.

Not Included with your Package

Travel insurance, airfare, meals and items of a personal nature are not included in your package.

Late Fees

Due to our contracts with the hotels and the NYRR, we must have both your final payment and your Runner's Waiver in by the deadline. A late fee of $50 will be charged to those who do not have their final payment in by July 1st, 2019. Those who do not pay prior to July 15th may lose their package and deposit.
