Please see the below statement from NYRR president and CEO Mary Wittenberg regarding the 2012 ING New York City Marathon. This is for media use.
"This is a very challenging time for the people and City of New York. The City is rightfully focused on assessment, restoration and recovery. At NYRR, we stand with our City agency partners and support their efforts.
The Marathon has always been a special day for New Yorkers as a symbol of the vitality and resiliency of this City. NYRR continues to move ahead with its planning and preparation. We will keep all options open with regard to making any accommodations and adjustments necessary to race day and race weekend events.
We will provide an update and more detail as information becomes available."
