Congratulations to all who received their acceptances into the 2014 NYC Marathon. It is not too early to plan your transportation to and from the event. It can be a complicated process with the start in Staten Island and finish in Central Park. A bus is available from the shore which will ease the burden of planning the logistics. Information and sign up is available here. The bus always sells out so sign up early to assure a seat.
