Beyond its title sponsorship of the TCS New York City Marathon, TCS is the creator of the race’s official mobile app, available in both the Apple and Google Play stores. Now entering the fourth year of our partnership, we continue to collaborate with New York Road Runners to make the TCS New York City Marathon the most technologically advanced and socially engaged marathon experience for runners, fans and families alike. In short, an experience that will be a memory forever.

The 2016 TCS New York City Marathon race app provided even more exciting, race-specific features for runners and their support community to keep track of the event. New this year:

  • Live, on-map tracking of runners—allowing users to follow up to 20 runners in real-time.
  • NYRR Race Predictor Powered by Tata Consultancy Services—used each runner’s unique running history to predict accurate finish times.
  • The Live Pro-Athlete Leaderboard – providing the list of leaders every five miles.
  • An interactive map to guide users through the TCS New York City Marathon Health and Wellness Expo, and ‘connected’ maps of the race course and subway to plan where to see and cheer on specific runners.
  • Smile Markers – allowing runners and spectators to learn more about the race, the course and the city that plays host to the world’s largest marathon.
  • Additionally, the app provided a vibration alert when tracked runners crossed the finish line.
