For those who live outside the United States, guaranteed entry along with the purchase of a "Marathon Package" (i.e. flight to/from the New York City area and/or hotel stay in NYC) may be available through an official International Tour Operator (ITO) in your country or territory. International runners who reside in countries that do not have an ITO may purchase a Marathon Package from an ITO in another country. ITOs are not allowed to sell TCS New York City Marathon a race entry by itself.
Please be sure to book your Marathon Package only from one of the official International Tour Operators listed on our website.
An entrant who has purchased a 2018 Marathon Package with an ITO and wishes to withdraw from the race must contact the ITO directly. The ITO will inform New York Road Runners of an entrant's decision to withdraw. Any withdrawn entrant will not receive guaranteed entry to the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon or subsequent TCS New York City Marathons.
