Luck Of The Irish At New York Half

NYC HalfIf you’d like the ‘luck of the Irish’ at your next race, the 2017 New York Half Marathon on 19 March is the ideal event. The race coincides with St Patrick’s Day Weekend, in the city that is home to the oldest and largest St Patrick’s Day parade in the world.

Around 150,000 people march in the parade on 17 March which draws about two million spectators. The half marathon is one of the best supported and most competitive races in the world and is a ideal preparation for a full marathon later in spring such as London, Paris, Brighton and Edinburgh.

Sports Tours International says: “With thousands of people choosing to visit New York every year, it is no surprise that thousands also choose to join the New York experience like never before, with the New York Half Marathon.

We are very pleased to offer you a guaranteed entry into this event. Pack your bags and take a bite out of ‘The Big Apple’. Join us for this exciting and vibrant event through the heart of New York City and help us celebrate St Patrick’s Day this March.”
