The New York City Marathon will take place Sunday, with over 50,000 people participating in the 26.2-mile run, the world’s largest marathon. Here’s all the information you need to know about start time, course route, road blocks and live stream details for this year’s marathon.

Route map: The race begins from the southern tip of Staten Island, goes through Brooklyn, into Queens and Manhattan, then the Bronx, and finishes winding back to Manhattan’s Central Park. The entire course route can be seen here.
