Relay For Life events raise vital funds to support the work of the Irish Cancer Society. At the heart of each Relay For Life event, teams of friends, neighbours, families and colleagues come together in groups and commit to keeping participants walking around a track or path for 24 hours.
Fun and exciting activities take place throughout the 24 hours to create a wonderfully festive atmosphere.
It also happens to be a helluva marathon - possibly the No 1 marathon in the world today. Combining a superb course and a vibrant, unique city, the New York City Marathon (Sunday, November 4) is a truly special experience. Starting at the Verrazano Bridge on Staten Island, runners cross into Brooklyn and then proceed through Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan, finishing in Central Park.
