There's still time for UK runners to enter the 2012 ING New York City marathon as the deadline for registration has been extended to 10 September. The race is the largest of all the World Major Marathons and takes place on 4 November.
Sports Tours International (STI), the longest standing travel partner of New York marathon, still has entries available in conjunction with different types of travel packages. The full travel package includes flights, hotel accommodation, airport transfers, rep services and the option to purchase marathon entry. There are hotel only packages and flight and entry only packages on offer too. Entrants must reside in the UK to purchase a guaranteed entry place through Sports Tours International but don't have to be a British citizen.
