The North Jersey Masters Team has been given access to the Local Competitive Corral for club members who are registered for the 2021 New York City Marathon and have met certain requirements.
The Local Competitive Corral Program allows club runners to be the first to start the New York City Marathon on the green wave corral A. This sets runners up perfectly to not get boxed in by other runners. Along with the start corral, runners in this program also will have a special start tent with private bathrooms, water, Gatorade, and other race day amenities.

Good luck to all participants!
