NYC Marathon will add a yellow line to their blue in a nod to Boston

Running News

Here is what Mary Wittenberg, president and CEO of the New York Road Runners, had to say in a guest post for the New York Observer: ”Crossing the finish line is one of the thrills of a lifetime for runners, and this morning representatives from many of our city agencies will participate in the ceremonial painting of the Blue Line, which traces the 26.2-mile course through all five boroughs. This year, we’ll honor victims and first responders of the Boston Marathon bombings by adding a yellow line, representing one of the colors of the Boston Marathon, for that final stretch from Columbus Circle to the finish line.”
