If you plan to go:
The marathon, half marathon and 10K race all begin at 8 a.m. near NYCB Live’s Nassau Coliseum and end across from Parking Field 5 in Eisenhower Park.
Nearly 5,000 people were preregistered for Sunday’s events, including 765 for the full marathon.
A number of roads on and around the marathon route will be closed.
Security will be tight. Among the restrictions:
- Spectators will not be allowed to carry any type of bags to the finish line.
- Runners’ bags and backpacks must be clear and plastic and are subject to inspection by K-9 units before transport to the finish line.
- A “large contingent” of uniformed officers will be assigned to the marathon, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder said.
