Take on the New York City marathon 2017

Over 50,000 runners take to the start line at Staten Island before running through all five boroughs of New York City. This is the world's largest marathon. Race day atmosphere is simply indescribable as two million peoplecheer you on. Your marathon will be a spine-tingling experience from start line to the finish line in the beautiful oasis of Central Park in the middle of Manhattan.

Not only will you have the sense of achievement and incredible experience of running New York, but you could be enjoying up to two weeks to take in the sights and perhaps do a bit of Christmas shopping!

This is a simply must do on the bucket list of life – run it in support of The National Autistic Society and make a difference to people living with autism.

The National Autistic Society is the UK's leading charity for people affected by Autism. Around 700,000 people in the UK have autism. Together with their families they make up around 2.8 million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day. Despite this, autism is still relatively unknown and misunderstood. This means that many people don't get the level of help, support and understanding they need. With your support, and willingness to participate in this challenge, you are helping us to get one step closer to helping all those that need it.
