& Over 50,000 runners will descend on the Big Apple this Sunday morning for the TCS 2015 NYC Marathon. Starting at the Verrazano Bridge, runners from every corner of the globe will meander through the streets of the 5 boroughs. While the NJ contingency of runners will certainly be well represented, other notables will be in this year’s field as well.
All 4 of last year’s winners will return including Kurt Fearnley (Men’s Wheelchair), Tatyana McFadden (Women’s Wheelchair), Mary Keitany & Kenya’s Wilson Kipsang. 2009 Winner and American favorite Meb Keflezighi will also hope to repeat his prior success. Celebrities Ethan Hawke, Tiki Barber, Alicia Keys, James Blake and more will also be running for charity. Sean Astin, an frequent marathoner, is also running and the chant of “Rudy…Rudy…Rudy” may be heard as he crosses the finish line.
This race is arguable the greatest running event on the globe. What started in 1970 with 55 runners completing the 26.2-mile trek throughout Central Park has evolved into one of the most amazing events in the world. Seeing the vastly diverse mix of cultures from all over coming together for the unified love of running is an indescribable sight.
Enjoy some pictures from the Expo and stay tune for more pics to come from Sunday’s race.
