Important Security Note

1. All runners and spectators will be screened upon entering the buses that will take you on the runway to the Race Starting Point and Spectators’ Viewing Area.

2. No backpacks, ladies’ pocketbooks, or other types of bags will be allowed on the buses. We have a special secure holding area where all personal items can be checked in. (See Question/Answer #015 in our FAQ.)

3. No cameras will be allowed on the buses. These items must be checked in. (Smartphones are fine.)

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, however, this information was given to us by the officials that are in charge of security at JFK Airport. We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Thank you.
