NYC Marathon Returning at Full Capacity in November

May 19, 2022

After two years of disrupted races, the New York City Marathon will be back at full capacity in 2022, on Sunday, November 26.

The New York Road Runners (NYRR) announced that the event will host 50,000 runners for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The race was canceled entirely in 2020 and ran at half-capacity in 2021. All racers will be required to be vaccinated in order to participate.

"Every year, runners from all over the world come to New York City because there’s no better race than the New York City Marathon," said Mayor Eric Adams. "This race is the strongest proof of New York's unrelenting spirit and determination, and we are proud to announce that, this year, we’ll be back at full capacity. With 50,000 runners competing in November, the city that never sleeps will be where champions are made."

More information is available on the NYRR website.
