AREDN at the 2016 NYC Marathon


The New York City – Tata Consultancy Services (NYC TCS) Marathon is a hugely visible annual event. This early November road race draws runners from around the world. A record 51,388 finishers crossed the finish line on Sunday, November 6, 2016, making it the largest marathon in the world in history.

More than one million spectators and thousands of volunteers line the city streets in support of the runners, while millions more watch the television broadcast in 175 countries and territories, including viewers in the New York area on WABC-TV, Channel 7, nationally on ESPN2, and via various international broadcast partners.

A vast cadre of amateur radio operators provide essential communications to support the safety of race participants and organizers.  An AREDN mesh network and associated Voice over IP telephony services provided the reliable communications infrastructure necessary for this important event.  The story of this deployment in a very challenging environment is told by Gordon W2TTT.
