Enjoy a the very best experience running this year’s Marathon from start to finish
NEW YORK, N.Y. – October 26, 2016 – The Ritz-Carlton Hotels of New York City are offering a one-of-a-kind Marathon package for 2016 to take of all the travel needs and unanticipated essentials needed for a successful race day. From helping you get ready for the big day, to making your trip to the starting line, stride from the finish line, and cool down that precedes it all a seamless and effortless process — the NYC Marathon takes care of every detail so that all you have to focus on, is the race itself.
This unique package features overnight accommodations at both The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park and The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park; Stay at Battery Park the night before the race, located just a short walk from the Staten Island Ferry to bring you to the starting line. After the race, your accommodations will be at Central Park, located just steps from the finish line. For your convenience, your luggage will be transported for you during the race from Battery Park to your new guestroom at Central Park, so they’ll be waiting for you when you finish the race uptown.
This offer also comes with a welcome package at Battery Park including all the essentials needed for a Marathon runner, like energy gels and a muscle roller to loosen up the night before the race. A specialty “Carbo-Load Live Pasta Making Station” at 2 West (Battery Park) will be prepared specifically for the runners the night before the Marathon. Once you finish the Marathon, enjoy a post-race 3 course pre-fixe meal at Auden Bistro (Central Park), consisting of protein-packed recovery foods plus a personalized welcome amenity in you room upon arrival at Central Park. Lastly, Marathon participants can unwind and relax with a 60-minute Muscle Repair Massage at La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park - featuring deep tissue and Swedish techniques to unwind painful knots, restoring you to top performance incorporating the healing benefits of Arnica to sooth tired muscles.
