Runlab goes to NYC Marathon 2019

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing information with you regarding our 2019 New York City Marathon trip.

Adventure Time Travel will be coordinating this on Runlab’s behalf and have organised this exclusive offer for you! Here are some of the details….

RUNLAB has the opportunity to take a group of runners (and non-runners) to New York for the TCS New York Marathon in 2019 in conjunction with Adventure Time Travel (ATT).  Over the past ten years ATT has accompanied many groups to overseas events, which have included the New York Marathon; Paris Marathon; Great Wall of China Marathon; the New Zealand Lake Taupo Relay; Vanuatu Round the Island Relay, amongst others.

 

ATT has International Travel Partnership (ITP) status for the TCS New York Marathon and as an ITP are guaranteed marathon tickets. Guaranteed ticket numbers are of great advantage for runners planning their goals for the year ahead.

The event fills up fast and ATT have commenced the registration process.  If you are interested in this opportunity, a registration form together with deposit will be available In Week 1 of Term 4 (October 8th) and we envisage the remainder will be required by the end of February 2019.

 

To give you an idea of the cost of the marathon package, the following link describes the packages offered for the 2018 marathon. Packages range from $3,000 AUD for twin share accommodation for 5 nights/6 days and excludes airfares (airfares are booked by each individual based on the time they want to arrive in New York and depart).  Naturally, the 2019 package prices will need to be finalised, nevertheless, the 2018 costs will serve as a good indication. http://adventuretimetravel.com.au/tcs-new-york-city-marathon/

 

We are very excited about the accommodation ATT has secured in New York for the duration of the package.  The Hotel Beacon is our preferred Hotel and the location is very close to the marathon finish-line.  The rooms all incorporate kitchens for pre-race meal preparation (or cost saving) which is an unusual feature in New York city.  With its premium location The Hotel Beacon has two excellent high quality Supermarkets immediately across the street to make self-catering easy if required.

 

Process

Below are the steps to register with ATT so we can start their registration process and allocate your place.

  1. Interested Runners need to complete the Registration of Interest Form (ROIF) completing all fields. We suggest they email their completed form direct to ATT and cc yourself. This ROIF form will be provided to you in a following email that will enable you to forward it to interested parties.
  2. Invoices for the deposit of $500 AUD will be sent to runners on receipt of the completed ROIF. Deposits are not refundable.
  3. A further Invoice will be sent to Runners for full payment. Based on previous years we expect this to occur in February 2019.
  4. As marathon ticket allocation is strictly managed by NYRR and there are limited amounts of tickets available we will prioritise runners in order of deposits received.

More details very soon…..
