"On the Run"

November 02, 2012 at 7:00am EST | by Barbara Huebner, NYRR News Service

With just two days to go before the 2012 ING New York City Marathon, Episode 1 of NYRR On the Run at Race Week looks at how NYC is preparing to host the ING New York City Marathon in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and how this year’s race will be about showing the world the spirit, vitality, and determination of New Yorkers and serving as a platform for support of the recovery efforts.

The episode also offers a look at pro athlete Molly Pritz, the top American finisher at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. Pritz, who is back again this year, explains how the race and one of its stars inspired her to become a long-distance runner. To wrap things up, Karla Bruning interviews three “streakers,” each with 25+  Marathon finishes to their  credit. To watch, click ontherun.nyrr.org.

In Episode 2, NYRR On the Run highlights two of the 2012 inductees into the NYRR  Hall of Fame, Miki Gorman and Nina Kuscsik, and talks with 2011 ING New York City Marathon wheelchair champion Masazumi Soejima of Japan. Americans Amy Hastings and Jason Hartmann and top Kenyan contenders Wilson Kipsang and Moses Mosop are also featured. And don’t forget to Watch Live! On Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST.
