Walk the Walk in the city that never sleeps...

The New York City Marathon is where it all started for Walk the Walk back in 1996 and we have been back every year since... it’s amazing and still very much a favourite; we can promise you an experience that you will never forget!

The ferry to the Start Line is a real treat; the amazing back-drop of New York is just breathtaking... what a way to start a marathon! We Power Walk the 26.2 miles through all 5 boroughs from Staten Island across to Brooklyn, then onto Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan. You see it all... from the iconic beauty of the Statue of Liberty to crossing the Finish Line in the famous Central Park! 

This Marathon is classed as the greatest of them all... so come and conquer it with us in 2020!

Take a bite out of the Big Apple with us...

Join the Walk the Walk Team on the NYC Marathon's 50th birthday and take on this amazing Challenge in a city full of vibrancy and culture; you may even be able to squeeze in a bit of Christmas shopping!

Everything about this challenge is incredible; the route, support, the medal, the location and of course, raising money for vital breast cancer causes and helping make a difference! 

This challenge is a classic and one of the 6 Marathon Majors... The New York Marathon has to be completed within 6 hours 30 minutes, so you will be aiming for a walking speed of between 14 - 15 minute miles; this is achievable by following our Training Plan. The Unique Challenges Team will support you every step of the way with lots of training advice, nutritional tips, how to reach the target speed and much, much more!
