The New York Marathon is one of the best!

Not only will you be experiencing culture, early Christmas shopping and restaurants like nowhere else on earth but you will also be joining a very special team of Power Walkers to complete the TCS New York City Marathon 2015!

Besides which you will be in the heart of all the magic; our exclusive group hotel is The Crowne Plaza Times Square, a 4-star hotel situated in midtown in the Theater District and the centre of this city that never sleeps! 

During the course of your weekend, you will have plenty of time to explore the city and all it has to offer, visiting the city at Marathon time is like no other... The Big apple loves the Marathon.

26.2 Miles and 5 Bridges... A Great Way to See New York!

This amazing city is the place where it all started for Walk the Walk and it is still a favourite so we can promise a long weekend that you won’t forget!

Myself and Anna would like to say a very big 'thank you' (to Nina) for such an amazing weekend in New York. Both you and Guy looked after us very well and made our weekend so much fun. The Friendship Run on the Saturday was crazy and great fun, it is something we would recommend to anyone who is going to do this Marathon as it certainly gets you into high spirits and the fun factor is great. It was really nice to meet all people and hear why people are doing this marathon. The team were all great and it was so nice to make new friends. The marathon was an absolutely amazing experience; Guy looked after us well and made sure we were all warm keeping us doing the hokey kooky which I must say was crazy but great fun. The Americans are fantastic supporters of this event and made us feel like celebrities, we must say at points in the marathon our faces hurt more than our legs through laughing and smiling so much. This weekend will be a memory for a long time. Thanks for all your organising and making it such a fab weekend!

A huge thanks for the very personal and friendly flavour to the trip. I should imagine other teams were not as well supported as Walk the Walkers. It is one of the best experiences I have had and shall cherish the memories.
