Mumbai marathon, check. Bangalore 10K, check. Now, head to New York City to run possibly the greatest race of your life. The first ever NYC Urban Race is on 25 September. The eight-mile route lies past some of the iconic landmarks and the spectacular Manhattan waterfront. Beginning at Riverside Park, the course extends along the West Side Bike Path before finishing in Manhattan, where a post-race festival will celebrate the athletes with live music and food. The course will also feature three custom-made obstacles designed to reflect the NYC landscape. Entry is open to residents and tourists alike, to a maximum of 3,000 people, on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants who register by 30 June pay $100 (around Rs4,760) for individuals and $150 for teams. From 1 July, the fee goes up to $115 for individuals and $175 for teams.
