3. Where Runners Need the Most Moral Support on the Marathon Route

Miles 20 to 23 can be mentally and physically tough, with Central Park not quite in sight and fewer spectators in the Bronx and in Harlem. But that’s where the runners need the most support! The marathoners cross the Willis Avenue Bridge from East Harlem to the Port Morris waterfront in the Bronx. After about a mile, they cross back into Manhattan over the 135th Street Bridge. Head to any of these areas to get the runners past that last hump.
