Marathon runners: I don’t have to tell you what time of year it is. The TCS New York City marathon is right around the corner, and you can reserve a sought-after spot with help from Flight Centre. The travel operator has an experiential package worth a looksee: a four-day running package including confirmed race entry, three nights at the Sheraton Times Square, and transfer to the race start. The 42.2-kilometer-course takes off at Staten Island, weaves through NYC’s five biggest boroughs and wraps up in Central Park—one really sweaty way to see the city. What’s more, the deal also includes a bonus “Flight Centre Active Travel Pack” that’s stocked with 2XU gear and Flight Centre travel credit. Just there to cheer? Ask about the four-day spectator package (from US$1,289).
