A true five-borough episode! The New York City Marathon hosts thousands of runners from all over the world, the dream project of the New York Road Runners and in particular one Fred Lebow, an employee of the Fashion District turned athletic icon. Find out how he launched a massive race in the midst of bankrupt New York.
NOTE: This show was originally recorded in October 2008. As a result, the cancellation of the New York Marathon -- and the controversies surrounding that -- are not included in this show.
The map included in the enhanced features of this show are for the 2014 race. Please consult www.nyrr.org for more information.
