Sometimes referred to as “The Marathon That The Running Boom Forgot”, 2011 starts a new beginning for this 86 year old legend. In partnership with NYCRUNS, we begin the process of restoring this crown jewel of New York running to its former prominence while maintaining the charm and reasonable field size (1,500 runner cap for the marathon and half marathon in 2011) that has kept our loyal runners coming back to Yonkers for decades. Featuring a great new start and finish, a well managed and supported certified course, and a fantastic post-race party, this year’s Yonkers Marathon is the first step in something great becoming something greater. So where is your ringside seat at the Yonkers Marathon? You will not want to miss out on this ground floor opportunity. After 2011 sky’s the limit. Contact our sponsorship team ASAP to ensure your place in marathon history.
