Before You Go

Things you need to know


Q.1 Is the race entry guaranteed if I book a package through Active Holiday Company? Open or Close

Yes, all of our World Marathon Major packages come with guaranteed race entry.

Q.2 What happens if the race is cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak? Open or Close

After two years of refunding entries, offering deferrals at a small charge / no charge, all World Major Marathon races have gone back to the old policy of no refund on race entries. This is the condition even if the event cancels. However having held the event safely in 2021 chances that the event will cancel in 2022 are remote. While there are chances that travel may continue to be affected from certain countries with little or no notice should the event be cancelled for 2022, we will contact you as soon as we know and offer the options available to us if they are any different from 'no refund, no deferral'. The exact option available will depend on the race organiser. We may retain a small administrative fee to cover our expenses.

Q.3 Will my travel insurance cover the cancellation fee in case of a cancellation - cancelled by me or on the event organisers part? Open or Close

Most Indian insurance providers cover a very small part of the cancellation fee. The exact coverage will be detailed in the conditions of your insurance policy and we encourage you to check whether you can make a claim with them directly.

Q.4 Can I book extra nights before or after the race? Open or Close

Your booking is for 3 nights/4 days from 4th November - 7th November 2022
Please check with us regarding your extended stay. We do not hold a block for pre and post-stay but we will do our best to obtain a confirmation for you so your stay remains uninterrupted.

Q.5 Will I have to collect my own bib? Open or Close

Yes, all the World Major Marathons require that the participants attend the expo in person and collect their bibs. Your travel documents will contain detailed instructions on how to get to and from the expo from your hotel.

Q.6 This is my Sixth WMM, how do i receive a six star medal at the finish? Open or Close

If you have booked your sixth and final Abbott WMM race, kindly let us know. We will guide you through the process and ensure you receive a medal at the finish.

Q.7 Can I check-in early? Open or Close

Check-in time is 3 pm on the day of arrival at both the hotel. Early check-in is subject to availability at the time of arrival. The marathon weekend is a very busy time for all accommodation and if you are arriving early and you would like a room ready upon arrival you will need to book and pay for it from the previous night.

Q.8 What category of hotels are used? Open or Close

The 3-star hotel we are using for the New York marathons is a mid-segment luxury property chosen for its location and facilities

Q.9 I am a solo traveller, is it possible for me to find someone to share my room with? Open or Close

We have several single runners interested in sharing a room with another runner and, wherever possible, we try to pair up people who have requested rooms on twin share. However, please keep in mind that this is not a guarantee and in some cases you might be required to take a single supplement. If you have a friend who is already on the group you'd like to share your room with please let us know your preference at the time of making the booking so we can pair you together.
The option to share your room with another runner is possible only at the NH Hotel which offers twin beds. Motel One only has double beds that cannot be separated.

Q.10 Is it possible for me to buy just the race entry and make my own accommodation arrangements? Open or Close

As Tour Operators, we are required to sell the race entry along with accommodation. It will not be possible to buy just the race entry.

Q.11 I’ve got the race entry through the Ballot / Charity, can I buy the accommodation from Active Holiday Company? Open or Close

Yes, it is possible for you to stay with our marathon group if you already have the entry or if you are travelling with a non-running companion. However, please note that this will be at the same hotel as the rest of the group travelling on our package.

Q.12 I am taking the race package through Active Holiday Company, is it possible for me to upgrade my accommodation? Open or Close

No, it is not possible for us to book your stay elsewhere. We plan our trips so that the whole group stays together at a single hotel so it will not be possible to upgrade hotels since you are part of a group booking.

Q.13 I cannot attend this race. Is it possible for me to transfer my registration to another runner? Open or Close

The New York marathon does not allow runners to transfer their spots to another runner or to another year close to race day. We can however transfer the race entry to another runner up to 12-14 weeks before the race. Please see the conditions to see the exact date.

Q.14 Is it possible for me to defer my registration to the following year? Open or Close

Yes, we can help you with visas and flight tickets for an additional charge. Please get in touch with us for details.
