They're only doing guaranteed entries right now. I'm in, did the 9+1 program last year. I'm claiming the entry, but will likely defer to '10. My coach prefers a December marathon so I'm thinking about Vegas or Dallas for a change. NYC is really great though, congrats to anyone who gets in!

I'm in. Via 9+1.

And yes, at this point, only guaranteed entrants know that they are in. Only have until this Friday to register by the way.

For lottery entrants, registration is until June 1 - then they'll let you know if you're in around mid June.

If you do 9 NYRR races during the previous year, you get automatic entry into the following year's marathon. They recently added that you need to volunteer at 1 race too. So...9+1.

If you don't get in through the lottery or the 9 + 1, I think there are usually some charity slots.  It typically costs more to enter that way, or you have to do some fundraising, but it's definitely possible to get in. 

Here's a listing of a bunch of them that appeared in the New York Times:  http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/08/marathon-slots-for-charity-fundraisers/

Subject: Charity Numbers for ING New York City Marathon
My good friend (and coach) is the Joints in Motion coordinator for the Arthritis Foundation and he has charity numbers for New York.  Below is the information:


The Arthritis Foundation is recruiting runners and walkers to participate in the 2009 ING New York City Marathon as members of our Joints in Motion team. The Joints in Motion program is designed to guide people of all ages and fitness levels through a training program to complete a marathon. Approximately 80% of all Joints in Motion athletes have never run or walked a marathon before, but with our careful guidance and encouragement, nearly all of them go the 26.2 mile distance and cross the finish line. The prestigious 2009 New York City Marathon will be the largest marathon race in history!

In exchange for fundraising, the Joints in Motion program provides its athletes with entry into these infamous races as well as professional coaching, weekly group walks or runs, nutrition, training and gear clinics and much more. We handle the details so all you need to worry about is getting in shape, raising funds for arthritis research, and experiencing the excitement of participating in a marathon.

Joints in Motion is a team of philanthropic athletes participating in road racing, cycling, walks, triathlon, hiking, and other sports.  These athletes through sweat and hard work serve as a focal point for the community to bring awareness, advocacy, and funds to help those who live with the challenge of Arthritis.  There are 46 million Americans with Arthritis - some are Joints in Motion athletes!  We are hope in motion - come join the movement.

Hows training going? I am in the process of buying my first house so a lot of my runs and training in general has been a little delayed. My long run right now is 10 miles which isnt terrible 11 weeks out but, it is what it is. Ive been avg'ing about 15 miles/week right now during most weeks but have really not been consistant and thats not nearly enough weekly miles.

I do have Timberman this weekend so that should be an experience, Im going into that either Under Trained or Well Rested. (depends if you are a "glass is half full or half empty" kind of person.

I decided to defer to 2010. It's too close to my Ironman so I won't be recovered enough to enjoy it, do well, and not be at risk for injury. I'm in the final stages of my long runs for the IM, doing 20 tomorrow, and it definitely has me thinking about marathon season ahead so I need to figure out which race to do. I'm sad to miss it, it is by far one of the most rewarding running experiences you can have. But I'll be out cheering in Brooklyn on race day for all of you!

For those who need some motivation, this video is fantastic. I must have watched it 20 times before the race last year even though I'd done it 2 times before! I think mburkhart may have originally shared it with me.

I decided to defer to 2010.



Good call. 3.5 weeks after my IM...I'm running but still feeling it, so it's all very slow and easy. Hope to get in a longish run this weekend - 15 miles. We'll see how I feel.

Training is good so far here, I am up to 16 miles or so and I should go for 18 this Sunday. 

I have one Oly left in two weeks and after that I will mainly focus on the run for the last month or so before the taper. Hoping that this will get me through an enjoying first marathon experience

I can't wait and I am already starting to be nervous ...

Thank you Kristin for this video, really awesome. I guess that running the marathon as my first time ever in NY will let me see the city in a way that not everyone sees it.

Hey everyone! This is the third time I've paid for this marathon and I'm really going to do it this year! I got into the race on my first lottory entry, but hadn't planned on it (I was on the enter for three years and then get in plan) - had a vacation planned during the race and deferred to last year. Last year I got a tibia stress fracture in the middle of my training and had to defer again - ugh! This year, training is going great so far, my first 18 miler went well on Sunday and I'm feeling good. I love NYC and I'm really looking forward to finally doing this race - which will be my 4th marathon (but my last one was 2006).

Does anyone know anything about the pace groups? Do they generally run even splits or walk through water stations?

The one year I ran with a pace group (I think it was 2004) the leader did not run even splits. He would bank time on the easy portions of the race and take it easy on hills. We did walk (slow down) the water stations and everybody regrouped after the water station. So, I am not sure if they have a set standard for pacing or if they let the pacers work out their own strategy.
