TCS NYC Marathon

Happiness Is Camping is proud to be an Official Charity Partner of the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon, the premier event of the New York Road Runners, for the third time. The event will be held on November 5, 2017.

One of the most popular marathons in the world, the TCS New York City Marathon featured over 50,000 finishers last year. The marathon begins with a picture-perfect run over the Verrazano Bridge, winds its way through all five boroughs, and ends with an iconic finish line in Central Park. When combined with the knowledge that you will be helping send children with cancer to camp for free, the marathon will guarantee one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life!
