For those selecting us as home base, our “NYC Marathon Survival Kit” is a tailor-made package for the modern marathoner. Address your last minute muscle trepidations and get expert endurance advice during your private training session with Dan Flores, our fêted in-house fitness guru. Navigate those final warmup runs using the compact Central Park Runner’s Guide while new custom Mark ear buds pump your favorite motivational tunes. Stay fueled with the energy gels and chews found amongst your marathon welcome gifts and rehydrate with premium pure coconut water. Even Jean-Georges has joined your support team with a customized in-room dining menu specifically designed for our marathon participants. At the conclusion of the race, as you woozily yet voraciously devour that post-run banana and it feels as though you’ve no energy left to go on in this world – good news; the finish line is literally in our backyard. Just a short walk brings you right back to those Quagliotti sheets you’ve been dreaming of returning to since mile twenty. Our friends at Town & Country would seem to agree: read their article here.
