The Empire State Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K are set for Sunday, October 13, and we have plenty of exciting changes coming in 2019 to make this the best #ESM yet. Here are just a few of the enhancements we’ve planned to make your race experience better than ever.
1. Expanded Age Groups
As a nod to some of the most inspiring athletes in the running community, we’ve expanded our divisions to now include 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, and 65+ age groups.
2. Distance Specific Medals & Podium Medals
Each race distance will now feature its own distinctive medal and in addition, the top three male and female athletes from each division will now receive an exclusive podium medal to commemorate their performance.
3. Better Swag
Our team is going back to the drawing board to come up with new and improved swag for each participant.
