2012 New York City Marathon
This NYC Marathon will look different in some ways: more barricades, bag screenings, bomb-sniffing dogs. Runners who returned after signing up for last year will wear special orange wristbands. The whole field will sport yellow and blue ribbons for the Boston victims.
The 2012 New York City Marathon is this Sunday, November 4 and there is at least one element of the race that is out of the hands any human being.
By then it will still be less than three months since the Olympic race.
Today was a big day for those hoping to run 26.2 miles in the 2012 New York City Marathon — including one “ridiculously photogenic guy.”
Who would pay $216 to run 26.2 miles? Apparently a lot of people, according to New York City Marathon spokesman Richard Fin.
