Hurricane Sandy led to the New York City Marathon being cancelled, after many athletes travelled to New York to participate in this year’s race.
The organizers behind Dublin City Marathon got together with the sponsors to hold a Dublin re-run on November 18th. The actual NY medals and t-shirts were shipped over and awarded to the runners when they completed.
Here are a few images and sounds from the day.
