The NYC Marathon 2017 is still on and just around the corner.

The TCS New York City Marathon is set to send thousands of runners on their 26.2-mile course that spans from Staten Island to Central Park on Sunday, November 5. Runners will step foot in all five boroughs, so get ready to reroute your errands accordingly — unless you plan to stop for some cheering between stops.
