This is my favourite race that I have ever run!

The expo is small but efficient so don't expect to do a lot of shopping here. There were some free samples but you needed to download a coupon beforehand which you could find via twitter ahead of time.

The course starts of in central park which is a beautiful but slightly hilly run. Start corrals are well enforced and there is an allotment of portapotties for each corral which is nice, but it does get to be a long lineup just before the race so go early! The most inspiring part of the run is when you head out of the park and down 7th avenue as the skyscrapers greet your entrance into the city. You then run down to Times Square where it is lit up but closed down just for you - truly majestic. You then head down the West Side Highway to the South Street Seaport for a great post-race party.

This is a race that you only get in via lottery so I would suggest trying to get in year after year until you gain entry - definitely a must do!
