Make 2009 a year to remember - join the Croí team as they conquer the ultimate charity challenge - the New York City Marathon. This breathtaking event takes place on Sunday November 1.
The ING New York Marathon ranks as the number one marathon in the world. The 26.2 mile route lets participants see every inch of New York as the course passes through all five boroughs of this unforgettable city. Spectators line the route five deep throughout the course and the atmosphere on the day is unbelievable and very unique.
For the past nine years heart charity Croí has taken groups of runners and walkers from all over Ireland to participate in this event as a major fundraiser to help in the fight against heart disease. Monies raised from this year's Croí New York City marathon tour will be spent on funding a range of new health promotion and education initiatives organised by Croí.
Being part of the Croí team enables participants to avail of the full package on offer - including flights, accommodation, race entry, and insurance, as well as providing exclusive physiotherapy support on the ground in New York.
Croí also organises pre-tour advice sessions on various issues facing a marathoner, including training programmes, correct footwear, and nutrition.
