November 5, 2018

The New York City Marathon set a record for the most finishers of any marathon worldwide — 51,812.

Organizers said Monday the total topped the mark of 51,394 from the 2016 NYC Marathon. The race through the city’s five boroughs Sunday was watched by more than 1 million spectators on a crisp fall day.
