What happens when you mix a ‘bucket list’ city with a ‘bucket list’ event? The New York City Marathon, that’s what!

Every year thousands of runners of all skill levels enter the lottery to have their name drawn for a coveted entry into arguably the most famous marathon in the world – The New York City Marathon.


A 26.2 mile course, with approximately 50,000 participants, 2 million spectators and more than 40 years of history and prestige set in one of the greatest cities in the world, can only add up to one thing—a  truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

As one of the New York City Marathon’s exclusive international travel partners, Flight Centre’s Stage and Screen Travel Services which specializes purely in entertainment and sports travel has a limited number of GUARANTEED entries for the event being held November 4th, 2012 as part of their ‘Runner Packages’ which also include return flights, accommodation, transfers, and more. If you’re not running but want to support a marathoner or simply witness this incredible annual event, they also have a special package for you too including Grandstand seating at the finish line.


In fact, one of our very own Corporate Travel Managers was so inspired by organizing the trip for her clients last year she’ll be returning this year as a runner:

“Working on the New York Marathon was one of the best travel projects I’ve coordinated so far. The city is wonderful itself, but when it’s filled with thousands of extra people it’s even more special.  The experience is beyond amazing and inspiring.  Seeing people finishing one of the hardest things they’ve done in their life and helping each other to reach mutual goal has inspired me to run this year. Once you see it happening in front of your eyes you want to be part of it.”
