The New York City Marathon is a beloved race of AKTIV Against Cancer. Our co-founder, Grete Waitz, won this race an astounding NINE times in her career. Now you can run it too! 

Don't miss the opportunity to experience this bucket-list event. Hear the start-line canons and let Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" usher you over the Verrazano Bridge. Tour the five boroughs and feel the city's vibrant energy. As you move along the race course, over two million people cheer you on toward the finish line in Central Park. Whether it's your first marathon or your 10th, it promises to be an event you'll never forget.
