The TCS New York City Marathon 2016 is almost here! Marathon Sunday is my favorite day of the year; I love it more than my own birthday. I have the privilege of being a finish line announcer on race day, emceeing events in the Marathon Pavilion during the week, and making a cameo on ABC’s pre-race coverage.

If you want to catch all the action from the world’s largest marathon, here’s how to join in the fun race week and tune-in on TV and online on race day.

TCS New York City Marathon 2016 Race Week

TCS New York City Marathon Pavilion
Yours truly is master of ceremonies for the week! Located near the finish line at 67th St. in Central Park next to Tavern on The Green, the TCS New York City Marathon Pavilion is the official visitor center for the TCS New York City Marathon. It’s free and open to the public all week with a full schedule of interactive experiences, including daily yoga and barre classes hosted by Exhale, athlete appearances, shakeout runs, giveaways, course strategy sessions, live music, and more.

You can also buy official TCS New York City Marathon merchandise, store your gear in an Airbnb locker while you run Central Park, or grab a bite and sip some wine at the cafe & bar. If you’re running the 2016 race, find your name of the name wall with all 50,000 runners or check out the Virtual Reality Race Course or Augmented Reality Course Map powered by Tata Consultancy Services. Come on down and say hi!
