Central Park Marathon Set on February

I know, a NYC marathon is on the bucket list of every runner (or if not every, most!) . For those hoping to run in New York, there’s an alternative to NYC Marathon. That is the ¬†Central Park Marathon which apparently was the original location of the NYC marathon. I’m crossing my fingers that it won’t be cancelled this time.

A marathon held within Central Park is tentatively scheduled for February 24, 2013.

The race will be put on by NYCRUNS, the organizers of last Sunday’s low-key Brooklyn Marathon, which consisted of loops in and around Prospect Park.

On the race’s registration page, organizers say they might move race day to March or early April if a date becomes available then. In that scenario, registrants for the February date will automatically be entered for the later date. Organizers expect to know the race date by early December.
