New York City Marathon returns for golden anniversary run

The TCS New York City Marathon is back live for its 50th anniversary on Sunday after 2020’s virtual run, with participants raring to cross the blue finish line painted inside Central Park. “Coming out of such a pause in life, very similar to what we experienced in ’01 after 9/11 … was the shot in the arm that the city needed, that sense of life and energy the city needed, a connection and togetherness that the city needed,” said Ted Metellus, race director at New York Road Runners, which operates the event. The event, which began in 1970, has grown from a local road race in Central Park to the world’s largest marathon.
