You must pick up your bib no later than Friday, November 3rd if you want to participate in this event. Price is US50 per person and the event is open to anyone and everyone. We will have very limited tickets so please place your order early.
Due to the cancellation of the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon and the limited field in 2021, there is still an extremely large backlog of runners trying to get into this event and hence we have limited availability of entries. That said, entries can not be held without a deposit.
Note: We will sell out so book early to avoid disappointment!
We can only sell entries with hotel and transportation to the start as mentioned above.
We are not 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 or via email afterwards. Although this is not a guaranteed service, we tend to find roommates for everyone when they inform us prior to May, and, the sooner you register the better your chances.
After You Register
After you register, 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 and make all of your payments before you are issued a guaranteed entry.
As the TCS New York City Marathon does not permit refunds, cancellation or deferral unless they cancel the event, our packages are non-refundable without insurance and entries may not be deferred. However, we do appreciate that things can happen and we will do the best to help you if you need to cancel.
If you need to cancel AND we are able to resell your entry package prior to the marathon’s registration deadline (typically mid August to early September), the following fees will apply:
US100 - until December 31, 2022
US150 - Jan 1, 2023 until registration closes and assuming we can resell your package.
If you cancel after registration closes and/or we are unable to resell your package there are no refunds or deferrals.
Note that these fees are refundable if you purchase insurance and cancel for an insurable reason.
As packages are non-refundable you should strongly consider protecting yourself and your money by purchasing our Group Insurance through Travel Best Bets. Due to the costs associated with this trip and as you will not be traveling until November, we highly recommend purchasing our 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: Travel best bets insurance.
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.
