Cancelled marathon leads runners to help with storm relief

| No Comments

Despite the cancellation of the New York City Marathon, many runners were still in the area Sunday to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
According to The New York Times, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg cancelled the marathon Friday in response to anger on the event proceeding despite so many New Yorkers still struggling in the wake of the storm.
The Wall Street Journal reported that many runners still ran the race route Sunday, some even wore their marathon bib numbers.
Many New York residents and runners said in The New York Times that it would have felt wrong for so many resources that could have gone toward storm victims to be directed toward the race.
