Applications Open for 2012 NYC Marathon

The application process for the 2012 New York City Marathon opened today, January 2nd. Apply for the NYC Marathon here and learn about how the process works. See the instructions and breakdown of costs here.

There are two steps in applying for the Marathon; first you must create a profile, then you apply using that profile. (If you've previously applied for the NYC Marathon or the NYC Half Marathon, you'll already have a profile.)

The 2012 NYC Marathon will take place on Sunday, Nov. 4th.

According to a New York Times article, 17,500 applications were received in the first five hours. Also mentioned in the article is that the cost of running the Marathon has gone up quite a bit from last year. The New York Road Runners Club says this is because it is required to pay for police costs for the race.
