TCS New York City Marathon Packages

We are delighted to be able to advise that you can now register for the TCS New York City Marathon.   
 
Our choice of the Residence Inn Times Square, which we have used for the past four years, is based on 100% favourable feedback from runners and supporters.  
This hotel is unique in that the location is much sought after, very close to Times Square, and all rooms have a fully equipped kitchenette, which is a great advantage over a standard hotel room as the rooms tend to be a little larger.    All rooms also have shower and bath (many hotels in NYC only have a shower).   Another major plus for our hotel  is unlimited FREE internet and wireless access (many New York hotels charge for this service which can be very costly).

Testimonial from a TCS NYC Marathon participants:-

 
`Sue and I would just like to echo the words of everyone else. Thank you so much Judy, Peter and Kate. You have been outstanding and made NYC and the whole marathon experience just so easy and so much fun. Congratulations fellow marathoners and thank you to our supporters. It has been lovely to meet you all.'
 

`I wanted to thank you, Megan & Kate for a memorable week in New York. Your organisation was superb. From meeting & transport of us ex NY airport through to race pack pickup and subway orientation, you enabled a stress free marathon prep. The hotel was superb, great rooms, awesome breakfasts and it had a really nice boutique feel to it. Really appreciated the little extras provided like the 7 day Metro pass and the post marathon race drinks. As for the race itself, it was a surreal experience that words can’t do justice to. Your personal ‘hands on’ involvement in the tour and our welfare sets you apart. I can’t comend MWT more highly.' - Scott Elliffe - 12 Nov 17

Our main group departs Auckland on the Wednesday prior to Marathon day.   After many years of experience of taking groups to this marathon we strongly advise it is best to arrive in NYC on the Wednesday night. It will give you time to adjust to your new time zone and remove unnecessary time pressure in case flight delays occur.
 
A list of tour options will be emailed to you in approximately early May outlining many of the tour options, passes, shows, sports events etc which we have found to be the most popular over the years.
