TCS NYC Marathon 2017
On Sunday, November 5th, 2017
The New York City Marathon is an annual marathon. That courses through the five boroughs of New York City. It is the largest marathon in the world, with 51,394 finishers in 2016 and 98,247 applicants for the 2017 race. The race is organized by New York Road Runners and has been run every year since 1970.
It is branded as TCS New York City Marathon and formerly branded ING New York City Marathon. In 2014, Tata Consultancy Services, a multinational information technology (IT) service, consulting, and business solutions company headquartered in India, began an eight-year term as the title sponsor. The race is held on the first Sunday of November and attracts professional competitors and amateurs from all over the world.
Because of the popularity of the race, participation is chosen largely by a lottery system. In 2016 Mary Keitany of Kenya won the women's race for the third consecutive time. Wheelchair champions were Marcel Hug of Switzerland and Tatyana McFadden of the United States. The 2017 TCS New York City Marathon will take place Sunday, November 5, 2017.
