Video: Runner’s Make the Best of the Cancelled NYC Marathon by Joining Together in Central Park

Just read a great article by Scott Douglas on the Runner’s World website about a huge gathering of runners in Central Park today. Here’s what Douglas writes:

The bulk of today’s Central Park runners were from among the roughly 20,000 foreign entrants of the marathon. Many ran as groups in national colors; a few carried their country’s flag. Some runners wore their race numbers.

“We said with others, ‘We want a marathon for us,’” said Bert Clemens, from Aachen, Germany. “The feeling is very good. There are all nations coming together.”
