Staging Area Contingency Plans Due to the Impact of the Federal Government
"Regardless of the federal government’s status on race day, the marathon
will proceed and the starting location will not change. NYRR is working
closely with our city, state and federal partners to establish contingency
plans for our Fort Wadsworth staging area that will ensure a continued
shutdown would not significantly impact the race."
