NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — The TCS New York City Marathon will return at full capacity in 2022 for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak, New York Road Runners announced Thursday.

That means 50,000 runners will once again toe the line November 6 at the world’s largest marathon.

“This race is the strongest proof of New York’s unrelenting spirit and determination, and we are proud to announce that, this year, we’ll be back at full capacity. With 50,000 runners competing in November, the city that never sleeps will be where champions are made,” Mayor Eric Adams said.

The race was held virtually in 2020 and returned to an in-person event in 2021 with a modified field size of 25,010 finishers.

The race’s atmosphere will be in full swing as well, organizers say on course entertainment is set to return.

This year’s marathon will require all runners participating to be fully vaccinated.
