It’s no secret that the TCS New York City Marathon is one of my absolute favorite races. It was my first marathon in 2007. I’ve run it three times total and now cover the race with New York Road Runner’s On The Run web and TV show. I’ll be at the TCS New York City Marathon 2014 race with “On The Run” on November 2.

But if you want to join in the action in the Big Apple, you can win one of two official entries into the TCS New York City Marathon 2014 race courtesy of ASICS. Each winner will also receive an ASICS gift pack valued at $500. During “On The Run’s” race week coverage, I’m often decked out from head to toe in ASICS New York City Marathon gear. I love it so much that I continue to wear it year round, like at the Trot Off Your Turkey 5K.

The contest began on Sunday, July 13 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. ET on Friday August 1, 2014.

Enter at the ASICS Facebook page.

    oooooh how exciting! New York is definitely on my list of marathons to race, and there is a chance I may go for it next year…depending on how Chicago goes this year…..hopefully better than the last time you saw me race :) Although I am not sure I could finish higher up than 3rd in NYC!

      New York is a must run. Hope your dial back week goes well. Chicago is a great race too! I ran it in 2009.

    Ahhh, so excited! I have to say, I’m (almost) as excited to run NYCM as I was to run the WDW Marathon! Totally going back to read your recaps now! 😀
