NEW YORK CITY MARATHON
More than 40,000 runners from all over the world will compete in the New York City Marathon. The event this year holds special meaning for many due to 2012’s last-minute cancellation in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The race courses through all five boroughs of the city and is a terrific way to experience the vitality and exuberance of the Big Apple.
