A Marathon is a big challenge to any true athlete. The Marathon of NYC takes it to a complete different level. This is not just a regular race, it is a worldwide event any runner feels honored to be part of.
It takes place every year at the beginning of November. This year it will take place on the 6th of November. Sponsored by the ING and organised by the New York City Runners, it is one of the largest marathon in the world with 45 103 finishers in 2010. You actually have to apply now and wait for approval via a lottery system before you can participate in the race.
Even if you are not there to run, it is a great event to experience in NYC. People are really proud and passionate about this annual sport contest that has been part of their culture since 1970.
