We can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since the streets of New York were filled with tens of thousands of runners. But this November, the biggest block party in NYC is back! We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the 50th running of the New York City Marathon!
There is truly nothing else like it and IT. WILL. MOVE. YOU! Running through the five boroughs on Marathon Sunday is like taking part in the world’s longest NP cheer tunnel. And in that awesome collaborative spirit, this year’s NYC Marathon Weekend is brought to you by the combined efforts of November Project NYC and November Project Brooklyn!
First things first, how are you joining in the festivities – Are you running? Cheering? Let us know in this spreadsheet!
Next up are all the ways you can join us for this awesome weekend – You can follow all the links below to the Facebook events for each activity and RSVP to each event!

COVID-19 Mitigation Guidlines
NYC’s vaccination mandate program, Key to NYC, now requires anyone entering most indoor activities (including bars & restaurants) to show identification and proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Therefore vaccinations will be required for anyone attending the post-race after-party.
Friday & Monday workouts as well as Saturday’s poster-making are outdoor activities, but we will require everyone attending to wear a COVID-safe mask throughout (not a buff). We ask that you please remain respectful of others, and move to an appropriate socially distanced space if you need to remove your mask.
We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the greatest city in the world, for the greatest weekend of the year! Please feel free to reach out to NYC or Brooklyn if you have any questions.
See you soon!
