The 2023 New Balance TCS New York City Marathon Collection encapsulates NYC at its core. Inspired by the city full of crossroads and intersections with people from different cultures and backgrounds, combined with the brand’s dominant position at the intersection of sport and culture, the collection represents this intersectionality within the designs of the apparel – most notably in the Impact Luminous styles and the TCS New York City Marathon Run Singlets.
The Impact Luminous pieces aim to outfit this year’s competitors in the most affective and eye-catching apparel for race day – featuring next to skin technology with Woven Reflective fabric designed to catch the light for a stealthy and stylish take on marathon apparel. The collection shares the same materials as the core New Balance Impact product, which provides similar overall design aesthetic, tech, and function – drawing from New Balance’s key position were sport meets culture. The reflective woven material is created using dope dyeing methods that reduces water consumption by 80% per yard compared to traditional dyeing methods.
“At this year’s 2023 TCS New York City Marathon, we are excited to tie in New Balance’s position between sport and culture,” says Tom Carleo, New Balance Vice President of Performance Running. “We always ensure some of our most advanced products are a part of this collection to serve the global running community who come from all over the world to run the marathon.This year, we are excited to include our Luminous assortment in the apparel collection and custom colorways of our most advanced super shoe, the FuelCell Super Comp Elite v3 and the debut of the Fresh Foam 1080v13. This collection is aimed to help all runners feel, perform, and look their best at the marathon this year.”

The Luminous collection also features the signature Marathon Windcheater jacket in new marathon colorways. These pieces vary in suggested retail prices of $25 to $200.
“The TCS New York City Marathon Collection is one of my favorite projects to work on each year. It’s an honor to outfit runners from over 140 countries for the largest global running event,” said Katherine Tamsett, New Balance Senior Apparel Product Manager. “We wanted to combine the latest styles and designs with New Balance’s best technology, with the goal of allowing runners to achieve peak performance and run their own way.”
