2010 NYC Marathon Route And Start Times Explained

The 2010 New York City Marathon will follow a route that takes runners through four of the Big Apple's five boroughs, and ends in the heart of Manhattan.

The marathon route begins at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, one of five that runners will cross, and winds through Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx, very briefly, before finishing in Central Park in Manhattan. It's almost entirely northbound until a left turn near the Major Deegan Expressway, and then follows a winding path back to Fifth Avenue, where it turns south for good.

The marathon's start times will vary depending on the groups. The first to leave, the wheelchair division, will begin at 8:30 a.m.; professional women will start at 9:10 a.m., followed by professional men in Wave 1 at 9:40. Two more waves will follow at 10:10 and 10:40 will get all 45,000 runners on the course.

If you watch to catch the full race live and don't live in New York City, you'll need Universal Sports: the network will show the race live beginning at 9 a.m., while NBC will air a compressed two-hour highlight show at 2 p.m. if you're inclined to watch something other than an NFL game on a Sunday afternoon. If you're in the city, NBC 4 will have live coverage of the race from 9 a.m. on.
