A new iconic course was set in 2018 and was an instant hit with all! Starting in Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, on Flatbush Avenue, you will head north before crossing over the Manhattan Bridge into lower Manhattan. Next, you will pass through the Lower East Side, before heading north on the FDR drive where you will be greeted with spectacular views of the Brooklyn and Queens skylines. You will approach the halfway point near East 42nd Street, and pass the United Nations building, before taking a turn towards Grand Central Terminal and Bryant Park. You will then head up Seventh Avenue before passing by 1000 children running through Times Square. Finally you will enter Central Park, and head north to 102nd Street Cross Drive. The crowd support will be incredible, as you make your final turn south on West Drive, and finish in style in the heart of the city, Central Park.
The St Patrick’s day parade route:
The 2024 St Patrick day parade will start on 44th Street and Fifth Avenue at 11.00. The spectacle moves on through Fifth Avenue and past St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is located on 50th Street.

Just a quick note to say we had a great weekend in Berlin. Weather was fantastic and Eoin did a great job looking after the guests from Ireland. Well organised and hotel was first class. The run went well and enjoyed a great rugby victory on the Saturday evening. Perfect weekend.
I just wanted to say thanks for a really well organised tour to Chicago for the marathon. I got back this morning. The hotel was great and couldn’t have been better located for the race start and finish. Also all of your instructions were spot on and helped a lot. That was my fifth major with only Tokyo to do now! Once again thanks for a great trip.
We can’t wait to go on more trips with Sports Travel and having Eoin as our rep again.
In relation to New York Marathon, Padraic and I can’t express how professional and helpful Eoin Daly was. From the moment we landed in JFK he has been outstanding. There was something very special having an Irish Rep for the last 5 days
