And we are not talking about the political race with those flares of anger carried between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
This is the largest marathon in the world, with 50,530.finishers in 2014 since it began in 1970. It was not until 1976 when they took the race from the park to the roads – Verrazano Bridge.
The NYC Marathon is a race of courage, endurance, stamina and commitment. You cannot just wake up tomorrow morning and jump into gear for the 26.2-mile marathon. You have to prepare, commit and register for a chance to be picked in the lottery of applicants.
It is held on the first Sunday of November and attracts professional competitors and amateurs from all over the world.
This year, a Brooklyn born family of Quadruplets will be racing to the finish line. We will be joining them on this journey with Brooklyn pride (#BKProud) and hopes that we one day can be the amateurs in this great race of champions!
SUNDAY, November 6, 9AM ET
Come join the multitude of colors, cultures and countries!
